At 15, Zy'mir is a passionate sportsman, not only a huge fan of the Eagles and Phillies but also an avid player of football, softball, basketball, and soccer.

He's a good sport, as well, managing to keep his cool even when the game doesn't go the way he would like.

This summer, he has played on his school's baseball team. But when he's not on the field, Zy'mir enjoys creating objects with Legos, watching funny videos, shopping, reading, and going on outings. He loves school and recently completed eighth grade, where he was on the honor roll. When he grows up, he wants to be a police officer.

Fun-loving, with a brilliant smile that draws people to him, Zy'mir gets along well with adults and his peers. He likes being helpful and cheerfully performs his chores in his foster home.

This teen would thrive in a family that would provide affection, structure, and support. He loves animals, particularly dogs, and would happily care for one in his adoptive home. He is close to his sisters and wants to maintain contact with them.

Zy'mir and other children are available for adoption. For information, contact Anna Coleman at the National Adoption Center.
