“I'm funny, I'm smart, I'm a pretty good kid. I do good in school and I do my chores,” said Jason describing himself.
“He's not a really picky kid. He's willing to try anything and he's very adventurous. So, traveling to parks, to gyms, he finds happiness in everything,” the worker explained.
“I like to go outside. I also like to do sports. I play video games and listen to music,” Jason said. “Basketball, football. I also like to play kickball.”
