Grant Me Hope: Demareo

Posted: Updated:

Imagine waking up as a child not knowing where your next home would be, and not knowing how long you'd stay.

This week in Grant Me Hope we talk to Demareo, who's hoping you could be his forever family.

Demareo is 14-years-old and loves basketball.

His favorite subject in school is math.

“Math is my favorite subject in school,” says Demareo. “My proudest moment was when I got an A in math. At first, I wasn't good at math. When I got an A in math I was very happy with myself.”

Demareo enjoys going to the fair.

“I like the fair because you get to see all the animals and you get to go in the RV and it's very fun,” says Demareo.

Demareo is looking for a forever family to adopt him.

“I'm looking for a mom and dad who would take me in and love me like a real family would.”

Grant Me Hope is a collaboration between WWTV, Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange and the business community -- all working together to find foster children a forever home.
