Adrian is a cute 13-year-old boy with light brown hair and brown eyes. Adrian enjoys playing video games and his two of his favorites are Mario Smash Brothers and Wii Sports. His favorite type of food is Chinese.
Adrian is a likeable child who can be somewhat shy and quiet around new people. But, he is quick to become talkative and enthusiastic after a short amount of time. At a recent foster parent dinner, Adrian was asked to sing a Christmas song for the congregation of approximately 150 people. Though hesitant, he agreed and sang the entire song!
Adrian is presently in the eighth grade in the public school system. He does well in school and has most recently earned A's and B's in his classes. It is reported by school staff that Adrian does well behaviorally.
Adrian said that he wants to know someone will always be there for him. Adrian has experienced multiple disappointments, both before entering foster care and after. Adrian has reported that he does not wish to be in a large family, but says he would like to be a role model for a younger brother or sister.
He desperately needs to feel like he is part of a family and it would be beneficial for prospective parents to assure that he is provided with one-on-one attention. Adrian has a lot of love to give to a family who can love him in return.
Adrian is currently in the legal custody of the Children's Division. Termination of parental rights has been granted and Adrian is legally free for adoption.
