Jesse smiles when he swings. It is the most peaceful thing that a person can truly grasp when just simply sitting and enjoying the simplicity of such a simple task. And that is what Jesse is, he is the simple enjoyment of life through enjoying those simple things life has to offer such as a swingset. All children have these great qualities that make them who they are and Jesse’s revolve around the beauty of simplicity. The simple task of completing a puzzle and giving a high five to show you that he is aware that you are in his presence, and he appreciates you. Or the shy smile that Jesse gives when you give him any kind of recognition or talk to him about how well he is doing. This is what makes Jesse.

Jesse enjoys trampolines and bounce houses and he is the easiest person to make smile, for he is friendly and smiling towards others. Jesse gets along well with his peers and the staff that surround him and responds very well to verbal redirection. And even though he cannot tell you every five minutes what he wants or what he needs like most teenagers, one cannot ever question the mood that Jesse is in for he cannot hide his feelings that show so dominantly on his face, and because of these strong emotions that dwell within him, the most breathtaking picture is that of Jesse smiling at you.

Jesse is a very healthy young man and he does very well in school, but what Jesse needs is a strong family willing and able to provide the stability Jesse needs to succeed. A family so caring and so nurturing that they will continuously watch over Jesse and understandingly allow him to keep his schedule day in and day out. With this kind of loving family Jesse will be able to show the beauty that lies within him and will be able to bless the family like they would be blessing him.

It must also be noted to the family who decides to bless Jesse’s life that Jesse does come with a past just like a lot of children in this situation. Jesse needs an understanding family willing to give him the stability he so needs to function in life. But it can be believed, and fully known, that Jesse will surely change the life of the family who desires him. One will be changed through that brightening smile that is displayed from the little things in life, the simple things in life, the Jesse smile that just makes a person’s insides light up, and makes you want to swing.
