OKLAHOMA CITY - Brajon is a sweet teen with an infectious smile.

The 15-year-old boy loves science, math and Spanish.

He's also a big fan of drawing cartoons and sports, and he's willing to try anything for fun.

"I'm getting a little bit better basketball. I play basketball on Sundays. I play one on one and I play on teams," Brajon said.

He's ready to give baseball a swing next.

Brajon was put under the care of DHS 10 years ago when he was barely in grade school.

He's moved around foster homes a lot over the years.

"Like every year I think," he told KFOR reporter Lacey Lett.

That's not easy on any child, but Brajon still manages to be lighthearted and make people laugh.

"I'm a jokester," he said. "I take some paper. I ball it up, and I'm like 'Kevion watch me throw this in the trash,' and I throw it at him."

It’s just one of his many pranks.

Brajon is now in 9th grade and says he loves meeting people.

"Like at school I like to socialize, but at home I'm kind of quiet and all of that,” Brajon said.

He says he's an introvert at heart, but his cheerful demeanor is comforting to be around..

Even on adventures he keeps his big infectious smile.

“Nervous. Really nervous,” Brajon said about getting on a roller coaster at Frontier City recently.

Brajon lives a roller coaster of emotions without a place to call home.

"I'm okay with brothers and sisters. I mean I always wanted a little brother someone that's younger than me for a change because I'm always the baby," Brajon said.

His caregivers say he doesn't care if he has one or two parents.

"I just want a family that's loving and caring and really cares about me, because I don't want to be with a family that doesn't care about me," he said.

For more information on how you can adopt Brajon call (405)522-4176.

The process includes training and background checks.
