A Birthday Shopping Trip for Mark who can't wait to leave his group home for a few hours for his birthday

Posted Aug 5, 2022
Mark is looking forward to an upcoming visit from his caseworkers where they will take him out and about to celebrate his birthday for a few hours. Mark would like to choose some activities during his outing that he can then take back to his placement and build. Mark is very handy, and loves to build model cars. Granting Mark’s wish will give him some control in his life when he has gone so long without. This special wish will absolutely brighten his birthday and the days to follow!

Mark is 17 years old and lives in Fort Smith, AR

Mark is a sweet young man with a positive mindset. He has been in foster care for many years and all of his siblings have been adopted. His caseworkers are working hard to find him his family! Mark is outgoing, loves people, and enjoys learning new things. Someday he would like to be a police officer so he can help people in need. Mark excels at math and science.

"Dear Awesome Human, Thank you for granting Mark's wish for a shopping trip! His caseworkers shared his request last week and were hoping that it would work out to have his wish granted in time for his birthday. Thanks to you, his birthday just got a lot more exciting! Giving Mark the gift of him being able to pick out exactly what he wants is also going to help with his self esteem. Thank you!"
