Everyday adventurer

John (9017A)

Looking for your next adventure? Well, then John’s your guy! Always on the go, he’s eager for new experiences – and hoping for a forever family that will take him on lots of adventures!

John is an excellent whistler and may be willing to show off his skills. When he’s sitting around, John likes playing with StikBots or Pokemon characters, but being the amateur explorer that he is, John prefers getting up and doing something fun. Need a little bit of help? John is very polite and happy to lend a hand. In fact, John loves helping people so much that he hopes to become a detective someday! (Or an astronaut…he hasn’t quite decided.)

John would do well in either a one-parent or two-parent home, and he wouldn’t mind having some brothers or sisters — but he would prefer they be older than him so he can get plenty of attention. John loves attention! He will thrive in a home with structure, firm boundaries, and routine. 

Parents who are willing and excited to take him out to try new activities or experiences would be ideal, especially if they make it clear to John that they care about his happiness and delight in his accomplishments. Adoptive parents will need to make an emotional investment in John and should be educated in trauma-informed care. Interested families should be willing to make education a priority, and advocate for John’s educational needs. Families should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
