This is Antonio.

He is a 12-year-old boy.

Note: Antonio is part of a sibling group and must remain with his sibling, Jacai.

Antonio is an outstanding child who is very talkative and loves to play 20 questions! He is the oldest of his siblings. Antonio loves to build blocks, watch TV, and play with Legos! He loves playing football and soccer with his brother and his friends. Antonio enjoys being around children that are his age or younger. When he isn’t focusing on school and being active, he always wishes he can eat pizza for every meal!

Antonio has a strong connection with his brother and is looking forward to a nurturing forever home where he will be with him. He does well with other children in the home and loves to be around animals. Antonio would benefit from a family who encourages him to be expressive and to step outside his comfort zone. He would benefit from a family who will allow communication with other siblings.

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.
