This is Angel.
He is a 12-year-old boy.
Be an angel to this Angel! This lovely young man would love to sit at your family table and enjoy your delicious food. He loves to eat and asks for seconds. He would love a family that can be nurturing, caring, is patient, and can offer unconditional love. He enjoys going to school, where he has an individualized education plan (IEP), and does well. He is working hard to learn American Sign Language (ASL) and making great progress. He’s affectionate and enjoys spending time with friends and family. He likes to participate in sports in his free time with your help.
Angel would benefit from a home that can provide consistency and predictability to continue his progress. He needs a family that he can trust and can bond with as this helps facilitate his good behavior. He will need a family that will continue to ensure his therapeutic needs are met on a weekly basis. He will need a family that is understanding, willing to support and advocate for him. He will need a family that has structure and is skilled or experienced in caring for a child with high levels of needs.
