A chatty and athletic teen

Robert (8677A)

Robert is a talkative teen who always looks after the people he cares about! Like many boys his age, he’s happiest when he can just goof off and have fun with his friends — he’s a big hoops fan and loves playing basketball at the local park or YMCA. He’s also tried soccer (which is his second favorite sport, after basketball) and swimming. But, if all you’ve got is a trampoline, he’s happy to bounce on that! 

Robert’s also a big LEGO fan, and he uses the skills he’s learned in math to help him build massive buildings. Math is his favorite subject, and he’d like to keep up his studies so that he can go to the police academy when he’s older.

Robert would do best in a two-parent home with at least one male parent who can serve as a role model for him as he grows into young adulthood. If there are other children in the home, they should be older and more independent so that Robert gets plenty of attention. Structure and consistency help Robert feel secure, and he does best when he knows what to expect day to day. Parents who make education a priority and can advocate for what Robert needs at school are ideal. Robert will need time to transition into a home and become comfortable with the family’s structure and where he fits in it. Interested families should understand the impact that trauma can have on a child.
