This is Adrian R.

He is a 15-year-old boy.

Meet Adrian! With an infectious, warm personality that lights up the room, Adrian can engage quite easily with both peers and adults because of his natural sense of humor and openness.

Adrian is always ready to sit down with family to enjoy a great meal.  Pasta and burritos are a quick way to his heart.  He is equally happy spending down time with a good movie and popcorn, or enjoying sunshine and fresh air with outside activities. He is also adept and interested in participating in sports as he is athletic and makes an excellent teammate.

An ideal forever family for Adrian will provide a patient, encouraging and stable environment where good structure, modeled behaviors and appropriate boundaries are part of his daily life.  Adrian is working on his emotional intelligence and honing his focus skills.  It will be an important part of his development journey to remain connected to his therapeutic coaching sessions. He is an intelligent young man who does quite well in his academics. He will thrive with parental guidance to keep him organized with his studies and help him identify and work towards goals.

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
