(WXXV) — Every Monday, News 25 features a person from Mississippi hoping to get adopted.

Today, you will meet 10-year-old O’Marion. He wants to go on a trip to the beach.

O’Marion would also like to have a family with a mom, dad and some siblings he could play with.

Here’s what he had to say:

“My name is O’Marion and I’m 10.  Glad to be here today.  Some things I like to do are… I like to do jumping jacks, running, go outside, play games…  What would really make me happy is to get adopted.   

“Some of my favorite foods are rice, pizza, Takis, and chicken.  I like to play sports.  Football, baseball, basketball, kickball.  I like to do Avengers, Legos games, Fortnight…      

“Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  Because we get to not go to school.  I gave someone a Christmas gift.  One of the kids… they said they like Nerf guns and then I gave them one.      

“I would really like to be adopted.  If somebody adopts me, I think it means glad.  It means its good to go to a new home family.  Family doesn’t mean you have to be related, you just have to love that person.   

“I would really like to be adopted to a great family.”
