10-year-old LaMarrie daydreams about having a forever family

Posted: Updated:

He's a 10-year-old boy who gives speeches at his church on Mother's Day and Father's Day. But what LaMarrie dreams about is one day having his own mom and dad to celebrate those special occasions with and every day in between.

Meet LaMarrie, who I found to be incredibly polite and thoughtful, during our playdate at Boomer's San Diego.

LaMarrie wants nothing more than to be part of a forever family and talks about when he thinks about a family:

"Sometimes, sometimes if I'm not doing nothing, if I'm in the car, I'll just like daydream about it."

He tells me he looks up at the sky and gets lost in another world:

"I'll look on top, like that and so, because it's easy for me to imagine what a family would be like."

Easy to imagine a storybook life that he hopes becomes his reality one day. He would like to have a mom and dad and be an only child or at least the youngest in a family with older kids. Right now, he's living in a loving with foster parents.

LaMarrie is involved at his foster parents' church and has been asked to do the welcome greeting on special occasions.

"Sometimes I do speeches at the church, for Father's Day, Mother's Day," said LaMarrie.

LaMarrie calls his foster parents nana and papa, as they're more like grandparent figures to him.

"They've provided him with a great home, he's really happy there," said Barbara Wojtach with SD County Adoptions. "And so we're really just looking for that permanency for him, an adoptive family that's going to be there for him for his lifetime."

This 4th grader also loves science and he does well in school, getting As and Bs.

Still, he says that he would love to have parents to share his stories with at the end of the day.

"I think LaMarrie will just be an awesome, awesome boy. He really wants a family, he wants to belong. He's friendly, he likes to do activities, he's having such a great time here today and so I think he's going to just make someone an awesome, awesome son," continued Wojtach.

If you're interested in adopting, call 1-877-I-ADOPT-U during regular business hours.

We'd also like to thank Boomers San Diego for inviting the Adopt 8 kids and our crew to spend a fun day at the park.

    It's difficult to imagine growing up in a different home than your sibling, but that's the heartbreaking reality for many foster kids in San Diego.
