May be the first professional-basketball-playing judgeJohn (8975)
John is a polite young man with a good sense of humor! He can be quiet and cautious at first, but once you make him feel secure he’ll crack you up. He has excellent manners and asks permission before doing things and works hard around the house. John also works hard on the basketball court, he’d play all day if he could!
His big dream is going to college and then either becoming a professional basketball player or a judge because he wants “to give people a second chance.” Right now his favorite team is the Lakers because they have LeBron James, he always makes sure to pick L.A. whenever he plays on his PS4. His current placement has a Friday Night Movie Night and he’d love that tradition to continue!
John would do best in a two-parent home and he wants both a mom and dad. If there are other children in the home, he needs to be the youngest. He does well with pets and if he could have any pet in the world, he’d want a lizard. He’d prefer his own room but is open to sharing if needed. Families should provide a calm environment and firm, consistent boundaries. Education should be made a priority. He would thrive with parents who are good communicators who display love and patience. His sibling bond is important to him so families need to appreciate his familial connection. Interested families should understand the impact trauma can have on children. (8975SG) Marion County
