*Andrew was adopted from US foster care when he was 3 ½ years old. He will turn 10 on November 4, 2016.
Andrew’s first adopted family has brought him far in his healing journey, and are now partnering with us to find the perfect family for this young boy who can continue his journey. Andrew deserves the opportunity to be someone’s baby—due to differing circumstances throughout his short life, he has never had this opportunity. We are looking for a new adoptive family with no other children under age 12. Please write to us if you think you can provide this sweet little boy with the forever family he needs.
Andrew is described by his adopted family as having a big heart and a large capacity to love. He shows empathy toward others when they are sad or hurting. He likes playing with his siblings and really enjoys being with people and ‘doing’ things with others. He loves anything that involves large motor skills: dancing, swimming,
snowboarding, bike riding, jumping on the trampoline, etc. Outdoor winter and summer sports make his heart sing!
He also has a natural ability for rhythm and enjoys playing hand drums. He likes to read (especially Diary of a Wimpy Kid) and seems to comprehend well what he reads, and can tell back the stories in his own words. He is willing to try new things and has an adventurous spirit. He can be shy and reserved when he meets someone new. He’s very charismatic, he’s good at sports and other kids want to be around him. He has friends, is well-liked by others and is invited over for play dates. Other parents have told his family that Andrew is a ‘positive influence’ on their kids.
Andrew is in the 4th grade and is getting A’s and B’s now. He’s currently in public school and seems to be doing well. Andrew is kind and gentle to the family’s pets. He doesn’t show a lot of affection, but will hug and accept hugs occasionally. He shows genuine affection for his siblings.
If you think your family may be a good fit for Andrew, please write to us at [email protected] and ask for his additional records. We have school, medical, foster care, and other records to share with you.
This is a private adoption, so a state or foster home study might not work. A state authorized private domestic or international home study is generally required. Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, MO, NY or DE.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. This adoption qualifies for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
