Jahairius, also known as, Jay, is a thoughtful, articulate young man who has a huge heart. It may take him a little time to warm up, but when he does, he is talkative and engaging. Jay likes to play sports, listen to music, spend time with his peers, and volunteers within the community. He has an interest in cars. His favorite car is a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. Jay is a talented artist and has dreams of becoming an automotive engineer. He also sings and dances, however he comes off shy when 'put on the spot.' Jay is an excellent cook, especially when it comes to desserts! His favorite food is Mexican food (steak burritos).  Jay is very mature and wise for his age. He is aware that he had to 'grow up' faster than a lot of youth his age due to his past circumstances. Jay does not feel bad or ashamed of what he has been through. He feels that his past has allowed him to grow and become a better person.  When asked, "What four things are most important in your life?" Jay's answers were his mother, trust, family and education.

When Jay thinks about permanency, he envisions stability and a sense of belonging. He mentioned that he is interested in a family that is outgoing, active, and likes to travel. He does not have a preference of family composition, however he would prefer that they live in the inner city. Jay would do well with a family that can keep up with his active lifestyle since as he is highly involved in sports and enjoys volunteering within the community. He would also benefit from a family who will provide guidance, encouragement, and support without being confrontational or judgmental. Jay’s prospective family will also need to be supportive of him keeping in contact with his biological family and close friends.

Only families living in Minnesota or bordering states are being considered at this time.
