Dawson is an active and easygoing teenager who enjoys playing sports, singing and reading. His friendly and kind personality is apparent to those around him. He just turned 15 years old, but he will become ineligible for adoption by next October. Dawson hopes to have a loving, permanent family of his own, and it’s urgent that we find the right family for him!
A ninth grader, Dawson is a hard worker in class, and he enjoys going to school every day. He especially loves to study Vietnamese literature, and he has studied English since the sixth grade – giving him the ability to understand simple conversations. He doesn’t have many opportunities to practice his English, but he hopes to have more soon!
Dawson is known to be a helper to his teachers, caregivers and peers. He’s an independent and respectful teen.
He also loves to watch YouTube videos — especially videos involving music and singing. One day, he dreams of being a YouTuber so that he can share his creativity and voice with the world!
The best fit for Dawson is a permanent, loving family with a good understanding of older child adoption. They should also be flexible and open to helping him stay in contact with his peers and birth culture when he arrives home.
