Outgoing and personable teenZeke (9241B)
Zeke is an active and athletic teen with an outgoing fun personality! He makes friends wherever he goes, but doesn’t shirk his academics for his social life — he excels academically and is very proud that he recently earned a spot on the all-A honor roll!
Basketball and football are Zeke’s favorite sports — and if you ask, he’ll tell you that his favorite thing about himself is that he’s good at shooting hoops (but he’s also pretty good at bowling…and soccer…and swimming…pretty much all the sports!). Some other favorite things? Ice cream, sushi, the color blue, and fashion (especially hats). Those are all favorites we can support!
Zeke would do best as the only child in a two-parent household where he can receive plenty of attention and support. Parents should be energetic and active, and enjoy doing things together as a family. Zeke does well when he knows what the expectations are, so parents should be able to effectively and consistently communicate those to him.
He would also benefit from a male mentor who can model appropriate behavior and provide Zeke with the opportunity to build a long-lasting relationship with a supportive adult. Zeke has a brother with whom he is very close, so interested families should be committed to cultivating their sibling relationship over time. Zeke will thrive in a family where he is shown every day that he is wanted and loved unconditionally. Interested families should understand the impact that trauma can have on a child.
