Wednesday’s Child: Domanic wants to connect with a family that loves him

Dec 7, 2022, 1:35 PM | Updated: 2:59 pm

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — At Bricks and Minifigs in South Jordan you’ll find a treasure trove of LEGO® sets. From special characters to exotic cars, it’s heaven on earth for 10-year-old Domanic.

“I just love building things,” Domanic said.

Building with LEGO® bricks is an escape for Domanic, who has lived in foster care longer than any child should.

“Since I was five. So like fives years,” he said.

It was just recently that Domanic was in the final stages of adoption with a family, only to be let down.

“It was frustrating,” he said.

Despite the disappointment, Domanic is still hopeful his forever family is out there.

“I want people who love me,” Domanic said.

“He knows that he’s deserving of a forever family,” Kylee Treseder said. Treseder is Domanic’s caseworker with the Utah Department of Child and Family Services. “Dominic is one of the sweetest kids I’ve ever met. I think the thing that really amazes me about him is how he’s able to open up.”

Treseder described Domanic as a very intuitive child who is interested and always curious about the world around him.

“He is smart, resourceful, and always looking for new things to keep him interested and engaged,” Treseder said. “He is extremely kind and willing to help those around him with things around the house or at school.”

Treseder said Domanic would do well in a family setting with siblings and hopes to connect him with a family with children close to his age.

“He really just wants a buddy to play with and build LEGOs® with and all of that good stuff,” Treseder said. “Someone that challenges him and is a good friend to him.”

Domanic said he would like a family to know that he has a big heart.

“I am kind and thoughtful,” Domanic said.

“Dom feels that it is important for him to find his “forever family. He values connection to others and wants to find friendships within his peers or siblings,” Treseder added.
