As his name suggests, Christian is a good kid with a big heart.
His worker describes Christian as a “lovely child.” She says Christian behaves well even when he might be a bit upset. “He has his moments when it’s best to leave him alone to give him time to process certain situations,” she said, “but he's never a problem and can be delightful.”
Christian sees himself as a nice, respectful youngster who gets along well with others.
This 12 year old has his own method of processing things. He does best with structure and routine. “Like most adolescents, Christian has his good and bad days,” says his worker. Generally, Christian does well in school and gets along with peers.
Christian would do best with a mom and a dad or a single parent who can provide the one-on-one attention he needs to function at his best. He also would do best in a home in which he’s the youngest child.
Christian’s new forever family must be fierce advocates for the services that will help him thrive at home and in school.
