Spotlighting children for adoption

“I like who I am!”

One Church One Child of Florida is a faith-based, 501(c) 3 organization, operating statewide in partnership with the Department of Children and Families and Local Community Based Lead Agencies and their providers in recruitment of adoptive and foster families and local churches to partner in supporting children in foster care and local families through Church Watch-Care Ministries.

Over 50 percent of the children who need a permanent family are minorities. The series continues featuring children all over Florida who are waiting in foster care for a forever loving family to call their own.   May’s child is highlighted in this article.  Continue to pray for him and consider making him a part of your family through adoption or a part of your church through Project Watch-Care, for support and mentoring.

Marquele

“I like who I am!”

Marquele is a charismatic young man with a big heart. He loves science and wants to become a chemical engineer when he grows up. He has an insatiable curiosity, and once he latches on to an idea or interest, he’s determined to follow it through.

Marquele is a good and loyal friend, and a diehard Seahawks fan! Although he’s been through a lot in his young life, he still has the simple desire of any kid: to be special to someone.

He will thrive in a home with one or two loving, understanding parents and will do best as the youngest or only child.

If  you are interested in knowing more about Marquele and other children in foster care available for adoption, or if you would like to become a foster parent, mentor, partner or volunteer, please contact LaKay Fayson, Recruitment Coordinator for One Church One Child of Florida, at (813) 740-0210 or  lakay_fayson@ococfl.org.
