This is William.
He is a 17-year-old boy.
William is an active, social young man who has a sweet and helpful side. He loves to engage with younger children and is good with animals. This youngster enjoys sports such as basketball, skateboarding, and riding bikes. He would like to learn to play the guitar, has a special interest in cars and would like to be a mechanic one day. William will require support in school where he is on an IEP as well as ongoing therapy to address his challenging behaviors and needs. He can becomes easily overwhelmed and frustrated and needs consistent, positive feedback.
William will need a strong, two-parent family who understands and has experience working with trauma-based needs. The ideal adoptive family should be kind, patient, non-reactive, structured and be able to love William unconditionally.
William has a brother with whom he would like to maintain contact.
