Looking for: A loving adoptive family

Bright and energetic, James is a really awesome kid who deserves the right adoptive family to come forward. James is smart, active, and really social – he loves to make new friends! He’s an adaptable kid who appreciates new places and new people. You could spend all day tallying up James's many interests. In fact he has so many, he wanted to create an In-Depth Profile to share about as many as possible. Soccer, cars, movies, scootering, legos, and hot wheels make the short list these days.

Currently in the 7th grade, James really likes school. He is great at participating in class and bonds particularly well with his teachers and peers. Extra support and encouragement really helps ensure James’s success in school. An adoptive family who will encourage and guide his education will be especially helpful for James’s future.

James has a passion for all things cars. And he wanted to share it on his In-Depth Profile!

Creating an In-Depth Profile was appealing to James because he wants to share his voice and personality with potential adoptive families. It took effort and time to complete it remotely, and James was engaged from start-to-finish. He brainstormed his ideas, made time to share over video calls, and reviewed his profile to approve it. He's excited for potential families out there to see it!

James has a close relationship with his biological sister. An adoptive family who will support and encourage that bond will be essential.

James does best with consistent structure. An adoptive family who will provide James with lots of love, care, and patience will be great for him. James has a lot of positive energy and will bring that to his new adoptive family.

James would like to be adopted and he knows what he wants in a family. He has stated that he would love a two parent family and is open to siblings, of any age. James is really social and friendly, but would also love his own room to enjoy the space. Being together matters a lot to James, so he’d like a family who likes to play outside together, eat dinner together, and play sports together. It’s important to James that his adoptive family knows that he is biracial, which is a big part of his identity. Lastly, James would like potential adoptive families to know he is open to a family that has a turtle, a dog, or a hedgehog. (Or all three?)

If you can envision James in your family, reach out to us! We can’t wait to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
