If you spend two minutes with 14-year-old Khamari, it is plain as day.  This kid has a big personality.  He's a person that is not going to be denied when it comes to life.  Khamari is destined to do some incredible things in his life.  He just needs someone to help him navigate him into adulthood.

Khamari is definitely a creative kid.  He loves music, he is a natural performer.  Like many other teenaged boys, Khamari enjoys playing video games with his friends, but he also likes to get outside on his scooter and zip around the neighborhood.

When I grow up, I want to be a video game designer, music beat maker, and doctor! --Khamari

He thrives on receiving one-on-one attention from caring adults, but is also able to play independently.  He is also very curious and loves to talk and ask questions.

Legally freed for adoption, Khamari would benefit from being part of an energetic and loving family of any kind, with or without older children in the home. An ideal family for Khamari would be engaging, nurturing, and able to continue the beneficial services he has in place for him.
