   Dillon is a very talkative, and extremely intelligent young man who enjoys staying active playing football, basketball, boxing, karate, and soccer.  He loves The Ohio State Buckeyes football team and the Chicago Bears!  One of Dillon’s favorite players is Walter Peyton.  He also likes playing card games such as Pokémon and has quite a collection.  Dillon enjoys drawing, especially pictures for his grandmother.  Dillon says that when he grows up he wants to be “a boxer or a pro football player”.  Dillon is currently reading Shakespeare and is a very gifted writer.  Dillon likes to share what he has learned and has a gift for telling stories.

Dillon’s adoptive parents will need to devote lots of time and attention to helping him work through his past trauma, as well as emotional and behavioral challenges.  Dillon needs a family where there are no younger kids or children that are low-functioning.  He’s looking for a forever family who can help him achieve his goals, and can provide him lots of love and support!

Families interested in adopting these four children will need to be patient as they transition to an adoptive home, since they have been placed in their current foster home for such a long time and have experienced significant trauma and loss. The children’s biological parents have also expressed interest in sending letters or maintaining some sort of contact with these kids as they grow up if adoptive parents feel it would be appropriate.

The agency is looking to place all four children together in an adoptive placement. They need a forever home where they can get lots of love and attention!
