Qu’Mari brings joy to his family every day. His smile and laughter light up the room and his hugs and cuddles will steal your heart.

Qu’Mari loves to play outside and to be in the water. He also enjoys spending time with his dog, Blue. His siblings are his favorite playmates. He plays video games and watches TV with his twin brother Da’Mari. He also loves his big sister Angel—she’s the first person he calls for most mornings. Angel is a teacher to him, inspiring him to work hard and dream big every day!

Qu’Mari has a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. His mom says she is proud of Qu’Mari because he helps her keep the faith and because each year he reaches a new milestone and does something new. His family wants the world to know his disability does not define him.
