15-yr-old Jesse is still looking for an adoptive home

Las Vegas, NV - A lot can happen in a young person's life in two years.  That's how long it's been since we last featured "Jesse" on Wednesday's Child.  Dave Courvoisier says he's no less in need of an adoptive home today.

Almost exactly two years ago, we arranged for Jesse to get a real taste of community theatre.  He's always wanted to be an actor, and he still does...

But now he's also branching into singing.

Like a true performer, Jesse was only a *little* self-conscious singing us a song he wrote on his own.  But more important was "why* he wrote it.

"It shows it says people can be who they want to be without being judged," claims Jesse.

After that song, Jesse enjoyed seeing all the other performers at Madame Tussauds.

In just a few days, Jesse will be 15, and he's got so much going for him:

"He’s smart. And he’s clever. He’s optimistic. It’s like we said before he’s a great communicator like amazing like and he knows adults so well too and he can share his needs and his wants. And i think he’s self-aware and that’s a really good characteristic and trait to have as a person," says Kerri, Jesse's DFS Case Worker. 

Jesse still loves the theatre, but he's added being an attorney to his possible future.

"Because he’s so… he has so many great abilities, if he had somebody who could tap into that and help him?… he would be great," adds Kerrie.

Jesse is looking for the things a lot of kids take for granted.

"Love, respect for my privacy, and just basic respect. Always being trustworthy," admits Jesse.

"And he does (want to be adopted) Yet he wants a family. He wants a family he that can come home to and like you said take vacations with and someone that he can bring a snack to school and make him one. He just wants something… someone to care for him," says Kerrie.

If there's room in your family for this bright young man, please call the Adoption Exchange today at 702-436-6335
