This tough guy kid is all about playing football the best that he can. He likes to play defense because he finds tackling the other team exciting. When he isn’t playing football, he watches it on TV and cheers on his favorite teams. Football is almost 24/7 for Marcus, so much that he wants be a football player when he grows up.
Right now, he loves Super Why! and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He will listen to hip hop music and some songs from various Disney movies. Marcus’ favorite place to visit when it’s nice outside is the Cincinnati Nature Center—he loves to camp, hike and go boating.
Marcus is a thoughtful, energetic boy. He will need a family that can encourage this behavior while also teaching him to express his other emotions properly. An active family, with maybe a few dogs Marcus can play with, will be the perfect fit.Find Out More
About the kids...
Most of our kids who are available and waiting for adoption in Hamilton County are older than 10. Younger kids usually are adopted by their extended family or their foster parents. The younger kids who are available for adoption are typically parts of sibling groups.
The children in our care have experienced some level of abuse or neglect, or they come from families who are not able to care for them because of unfortunate circumstances. Being in foster care has allowed HCJFS to provide for their safety and well-being.
But in spite of all they've been through, the children in our care are much like any others. They like to hang out with their friends, they have favorite toys and TV shows.
They also have hopes and dreams - especially for permanent, loving families that will provide them with the safety, stability and unconditional commitment that they deserve.
