Enjoy the letter below written by Marcus himself!
My name is Marcus*. I am 11 years old. I attend a special school. I am in first grade. I think I'm really sociable. I really like being around people, but I was born with a slight case of Pateau Syndrome and because of that I have some moderate physical differences and slight mental challenges.
But anyway, I love to interact with adults as well as my peers, older or smaller. I always smile and am in a good mood. I am gentle and friendly. But I also defend my opinions. I do all my chores: make my bed, fold my clothes, do my school work. I work hard to do everything well, the best that I can. I love football and my football hero is James. I also enjoy painting: I like to draw houses.
My parents left me in the hospital when I was about three. I am looking for a family since then.
Could Marcus be your son?
