Meet King

King is excited to share some of his story through our In-Depth Profiles, a NWAE project that empowers teens and pre-teens to speak directly to potential adoptive families. Learn more about In-Depth Profiles.

Always up for: The trampoline park
Favorite board game: Sorry
Known for: His silliness
Wants to find: A permanent family

Always on the go, King loves to be active in any possible way. His three favorite outdoor activities are riding his bike, gliding down the street on his scooter, and playing basketball. This kid is happiest when he can be on the move, even just going for a car ride or watching the trains go by.

King also lights up at the opportunity to visit the trampoline park, the swimming pool, or the local playground. These activities are their very best in the company of other playful adults and kids!

Batman and Spider-Man are King’s favorite superheroes but don’t get us wrong – he likes them all. When he’s not outside enjoying nature, he’s likely watching his favorite cartoons or playing some kind of electronic game. It’s not hard to make sure he’s having a good time.

Affectionate and funny, King is a people-person. He really enjoys spending time with people one-on-one, having a great conversation. He’s a curious kid who likes to ask a lot of questions and share his thoughts on various subjects. King connects well with his peers and younger kids and enjoys spending time with people of all ages. He’s really drawn to people and is learning lots about social boundaries, respect, and friendship.

King enjoys being in elementary school and learning new things. He tends to do his very best in a school setting with structure and individual time, but school can be difficult if he is not properly supported. An adoptive family who can keep King motivated, guide him as he continues to learn, and can work with a team helping King with his education is essential. King will need a family who can be involved and advocate for him around his educational needs.

King has a large team that works with and supports him in learning to understand and manage his skills and challenges. King is most motivated when he has a lot of positive support from the adults in his life and others around him, regardless of the situation. The right adoptive family will be experienced in and dedicated to understanding, coordinating and prioritizing all of the supports King may need throughout his life. They will commit to providing King with lifelong care and attention so that he can continue to learn and grow.

We are excited to hear from families who can uplift King for the awesome kid he is while giving him all of the love and support he needs to continue to learn about the world around him. King would do best in a family where he has you all to himself, or he could do well with other kids that are 4-5 years older to ensure he’s getting ample time to shine on his own.

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