Outdoorsy kid with a love of fishingEzra (8683A)
Ezra absolutely loves the outdoors and being in nature — this guy would stay outside all day if he could! His favorite outdoor activity? Fishing. He finds it very relaxing to sit on the water all day seeing what he can catch. He’s a pretty good fisherman, and even spends time watching videos on fishing to better learn how to catch the biggest fish out there!
Ezra’s also got a keen interest in Greek mythology, and has even figured out how to connect that to his love of fishing. If he could pick any Greek god to be, Ezra would opt for Poseidon — since he controls the water, that sure would make fishing easier!
Hopeful for a family that lives in the country, Ezra would really like to have his own garden to tend to. He’s especially interested in growing peppers and other veggies, but also wants to plant some flowers too.
Regardless of whether he’s on the water, nurturing seedlings into full plants, or out in the community, Ezra is always looking out for those in need. On an outing around Christmastime, he saw a charity drive for the needy — and he didn’t hesitate to run over and drop in some of the money he’d been saving up. This caring and generous teen knows that even little acts of kindness can make a big difference!
Ezra would do best in a calm, two-parent home without other children so he can get lots of one on one attention. He will thrive with experienced, mature parents who are calm and patient. Structure and consistency are important, as Ezra does best when he has a routine to adhere to. Of course, he hopes for an active family that likes to do things like camping or fishing together. Parents who can make education a priority and gently encourage Ezra to strive for success are ideal.
He will need time and patience during a transition into a forever home. Parents should understand that trust doesn’t come easily to Ezra, and he will need them to demonstrate an unshakeable commitment to him. He has siblings with whom he will would like to maintain contact. The ideal family will have experience in trauma-informed parenting. Interested families should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
