Meet Aleksander

A natural explorer and not one to shy away from a new environment, Aleksander loves the water and especially enjoys playing in the pond. There’s always something new to discover outside! With a previous caregiver, Aleksander loved exploring the night with a flashlight.

When indoors, Aleksander enjoys watching TV, playing on his tablet or with his Toy Story action figures, or reading a book. Aleksander is super playful and likes to joke around with his foster parents, tricking them into thinking he wants them to read one page, but quickly flipping it to another when they start to read the words. A few of his favorite things to read are the small print on the Safeway flyer, magazines, and the atlas. He loves to read anything that is informative, especially any papers that have instructions to build an item.

Aleksander’s former caregiver says that they appreciate his tenacity and drive. He’s an affectionate kid who loves to play and spend time with people. There are a few key relationships in Aleksander’s life that are important to maintain throughout his life. Adoptive families should be supportive in these bonds.

Aleksander does well in his classroom environment. Working one-on-one with his teachers, paraeducators, mentors, and other members of his team is the best way for him to learn. Recently, Aleksander has been learning ASL and knows quite a few new signs! He's recently learned to say the word "go," which has been a huge step!

Aleksander will do well in any family configuration including a pet or two – he's very gentle with animals! An adoptive family who can support, love, and guide Aleksander throughout his life will be a great fit for this awesome kid.

If you can see Aleksander in your family, please reach out to us. We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
