United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Okeechobee is proud to partner with the Children’s Network of Southwest Florida. United Way will be featuring a child from the Heart Gallery every couple weeks. Please share this with people you know who may want to adopt a child. If you are interested in becoming an adoptive parent, please visit this link or call 1-855-933-KIDS (5437).

Jesse is a comical teenager who will steal your heart away. He enjoys playing outside and has a big imagination. He gets along with other children and does well in school. He says that science is his favorite subject and he really enjoys “bug hunting”. Jesse needs parents who are involved with his education and advocate on his behalf. He needs to know what is expected of him, so consistency and routine are very important for him. Jesse would like to be in contact with his grandparents who visit with him on a regular basis. Therefore, his adoptive family must be supportive of maintaining relationships which would include on-going contact through phone calls and visitation. Jesse would benefit from a two parent home with a family who can provide him with unconditional love.
