Fourteen-year-old Marshall is one-of-a-kind. He loves music, and has a playful personality that pulls you in.
He loves all kinds of music. We met up with local musicians Byrd and Street to see just how music is made. Marshall's favorite instruments are the drums, and piano.
A big joker, Marshall has kept his child-like sense of wonder going strong and has a shining sense of humor to match.
Marshall's enjoyment with the little things is apparent in his eyes, but a big key missing from his life—parents of his own to share his enthusiasm.
"I'd have someone to love and go to when I get older," he said.
Right now Marshall lives in foster care. He says it's not the same as a forever family and that the idea of getting adopted is like music to his ears.
"I need a family,” Marshall said. “I don't want just to go different places and then, go ‘Oh, they're good for me' Oh, nevermind.'"
With Marshall’s kind smile, and great sense of humor, he's a great catch for the right family.
"I'm fun, polite, and I have good table manners," Marshall said.
