12 Year Old, Male, Black


Deandre - Heart Gallery of North TexasInitially, Deandre appears to be a very shy and reserved child; in actuality, he is very outgoing and fun-loving. He likes to constantly make others laugh and smile. Deandre has a knack for finding the funniest YouTube and Tik-Tok videos, and he likes to watch your reaction to them. Some of his favorites are the “Try Not to Laugh” videos! His friends describe him as “the funny one” or “the class clown.” Deandre’s dream is to be a professional YouTuber someday! Deandre is an engaging child, and he has the best memory. He remembers the smallest details about others. Deandre has a big heart, and he is always eager to help others whether that be his family, friends, or even people he does not know. One of Deandre’s goals is to help homeless people when he gets older, because “they need homes, too!”

Deandre is ready for his forever family! He will fit in perfectly with a family who encourages his love of sports, especially football! He says a perfect family works together and supports each other just like a football team would do. Deandre would like to have a family with two parents and lots of siblings who supports his desire to maintain his relationships with his siblings, who are not a part of this adoption.
