All About Jesiah!

Jesiah’s heart longs for the vast, snow-covered landscapes adorned with the enchanting northern lights of the Arctic. His ultimate dream? Frolicking in the snow until his heart's content. Jesiah channels his energy onto the soccer field, kicking up excitement and thriving in the game. When the Nevada heat calls for a cooldown, he finds joy in goofing off on the trampoline and taking refreshing swims. Screen time is tablet time for Jesiah as he dives into the digital realm during moments of relaxation. Cheetahs hold a special place in his heart, and the color "red-gray" tops his list of favorites. For the perfect hunger-busting combination, pizza and applesauce are his go-to. Dreaming big, Jesiah envisions having superintelligence as an awe-inspiring superpower. A strong bond with his caregiver and positive interactions with peers define Jesiah's social landscape. While he thrives in the company of others during playtime, he also embraces the joy of independent play. Order and neatness rule in Jesiah's room, where every item has its designated place. A forward thinker, he sets his sights on graduating high school and pursuing a college education.

With math as his forte, this fifth grader proudly asserts his intelligence, eager for others to recognize his academic prowess.

Jesiah would do best in a family in which he is the only child; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He would like to have pets in his family. Jesiah will need to remain in contact with his siblings following placement. Due to these connections, a home in NEVADA is preferred. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.
