BOSTON (CBS) – Dhamanjie is an energetic 10-year-old African American boy who is always on the go. He enjoys playing outdoors. He has a good sense of humor and enjoys making others laugh. In his downtime, he enjoys reading and watching cartoons with his favorite Superheroes. Spiderman has been a long-time favorite.

Dhamanjie started the fourth grade this year and is doing well. He is bright and has the ability to succeed academically. Last school year, he struggled behaviorally. He is making progress and benefits from an Individualized Education Plan, as well as weekly therapy to help him process his losses and develop appropriate coping skills. When he grows up, Dhamanjie has stated that he wants to be a scientist.

Legally free for adoption, Dhamanjie is in need of permanent and loving home where he could gradually transition. He will do well in a two-parent home that can give him a lot of attention, structure and consistency. Dhamanjie is nurturing with his younger twin siblings who have been adopted, and he will need regular contact with them, including several visits a year.
