AGE 15
MEET Jerman
Jerman is best described as polite, quiet, and funny. This handsome young man enjoys playing sports, video games, and likes working with his hands. He takes pride in his appearance and has a very mature demeanor. His favorite sports team is the Los Angeles Clippers, has a passion for basketball, and is always looking to improve himself on and off the court. He likes to be active, stay fit, and work out. His life goals are graduating from high school and having a successful job in either carpentry or masonry. He's currently in middle school and is doing well in school academically and socially. His all-time favorite food is pizza but is open to trying new foods. Jerman is motivated and has set positive goals for his future. He's at that age where he wants closeness with a family, but is also happy experimenting with increased independence. He's of Christian faith and speaks both English and Spanish. He would benefit from participation in school and community activities and perhaps volunteering in the Latino community to enhance his sense of self-esteem and identity and to provide him with extra-curricular activities. He's open to any family dynamic and is hoping for a family who will support him and help him reach his goals. He's got some connections with his birth family and it would be a great gift for him to maintain a connection with all his loved ones. Parental rights have not been terminated for Jerman; however when a permanent resource is identified the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
