As a teenager, he looks forward to more privileges and understands this means more responsibility. Devonte will be successful when he can trust and feel secure in a forever home. Devonte is looking forward to being adopted, but is somewhat hesitant of the unknown.

The ideal adoptive family will have strong knowledge and parenting experience. It is important that the parents have patience, structure, routine, and creative ways to redirect behavior. The family for Devonte will encourage recreational and sports activities. These activities assist with his self-esteem, peer relationships, learning rules and boundaries. The family will continue supportive services for him, as needed.
