It’s maybe a bold claim, but we’ll stick by it – everyone adores Gage. When he moved from his last home, everyone was so sad to see him go. When he was going to switch schools, administrators worked to keep him there because he is “an extreme joy to have in school.” Gage is super sociable, friendly, and a great right-hand man. He’s eager to make things easy for other people and is a natural leader. Gage has been known to encourage his friends and peers to be responsible and make good choices, which he also abides by in his own life.
Currently in the 8th grade, Gage has made such great progress in school. He is most successful when he has lots of guidance and tasks at the ready. Gage and his team are so proud of how far he has come in school and hope to find the right adoptive family to keep him motivated and on task! Gage is not sure what he hopes to do after high school, but is considering college. An adoptive family who can help support and guide him toward those future goals will be really great too!
“He is cooperative, helpful, and tends to most responsibilities around the house.” — Gage’s foster parent
With his strongest character trait being his fantastic communication skills, it’s no wonder Gage loves company. He loves to hang out with friends, but he’s also a great communicator with teachers, caregivers, his social worker, and his peers. Gage is genuinely caring and really respects everyone’s individual culture and background. He has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh and have fun. (Do you see why everyone adores him?)
To do most of his favorite activities, Gage needs to be outside. He loves to BMX bike or skateboard at his local skate park, or play basketball or football with some friends. When inside, his video game of choice is either Fortnite or Minecraft, though he also loves to play with a deck of Magic: The Gathering cards.
Gage has a close relationship with his aunt. An adoptive family who will support this relationship will be essential.
The ideal adoptive family for Gage is a big one! Gage loves being surrounded by other people and will do especially well with younger siblings in the home. Gage is used to having multiple caregivers and lots of peers in his home – an ideal transition for him will be a two-parent home with at least one or two other kiddos. Gage does best with lots of patience, positive reinforcement, and good support. Gage also identifies as a Christian and is interested in attending church with his future adoptive family.
Gage is a caring person who is eager to find a place to call home. If you can see him in yours, reach out to us! We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
