This is Angelino.

He is a 13-year-old boy.

A very creative Angelino enjoys working with tools, constructing things and building with his Legos.  He is an athletic child who is interested in soccer, basketball and football.  While Angelino is easy to get along with and has a great sense of humor, he is still learning the skills to make and maintain peer relationships as well as learning to accept affection from his caregivers.  He needs encouragement to feel proud of his accomplishments. 

Angelino would benefit from a family who can provide him with a routine and a predictable schedule.  The family needs to have a lot of patience and help Angelino implement his calming skills.  They also need to be able to advocate for Angelino’s needs and participate in the necessary resources with Angelino.

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.
