Mark is a 13-year-old boy from Pennsylvania who is hoping to be adopted."Hello! My name is Mark. Can I have a few minutes of your time to tell you about myself and what I am looking for in a family? In school, I participate in band where I play the trumpet, and in chorus because I like to sing. I like to listen to music, such as rap, hip-hop, and pop. I also like to dance. I enjoy being around people and most people will tell you that I am not a shy person. I like to be outside, especially to play sports like football and soccer. I also like skateboards and scooters. Like most kids my age, I also like to play video games and Pok?mon Go. I like to watch "Animal Planet," and my favorite movies are "The Notebook" and the Twilight Series. Even though I am not the best reader, I enjoy reading. I am looking for a family to be supportive and caring and give me a chance to be part of a loving family. I see myself as a good kid and think I would like to grow up to be a policeman or a veterinarian." Mark is not yet legally free for adoption, however when a permanent resource is identified, the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
