Robert is a very social kid with an active sense of curiosity and a huge smile. A puzzle wizard with very good spatial abilities, Robert completes several puzzles a month, many of which have 500 to 1,000 pieces! Among his many favorite activities are swimming, playing T-ball, attending day camps in the summer, dancing and singing, and socializing. He loves to be active and will benefit from a family who values physical activity and an overall healthy lifestyle. He thrives on attention from his favorite adults and loves to explore everything around him. Playful, friendly, and very outgoing, Robert is not at all shy, especially with adults. He’s a great communicator who speaks quite well and loves to talk and be heard! Although his speech can get jumbled when he gets too excited, he’ll often patiently rephrase his words or supplement what he means with gestures.
On another note: Robert really, really loves the movie Frozen. Many of his prized possessions are decorated with Frozen stickers and decals.
Robert is doing his best in his daily life. Robert is working with trusted adults to learn the most effective ways to express his emotions and continues to be mostly successful in his efforts. Supported by the positive parenting skills of his caregivers, who help guide and teach him, Robert has made noticeable progress overall.
Now in 4th grade, Robert has a school program that provides great resources for him to learn effectively. With the right supports in place, he is able to do well in school. As Robert learns the most appropriate social behaviors, he is happy to be supported by positive role models in the classroom. Robert enjoys being included in school activities but even more so, appreciates the time he has to work in his own space. If he had his choice, he’d sit in his classroom all day and do puzzles.
Robert would really like to be in a permanent home and feel like he belongs. If you are a family who would like the opportunity to nurture a sweet, delightful, capable young boy, we would like to hear from you. Robert is a kind child who needs a lot of one on one attention, and who works well with positive reassurance. Robert is motivated by goal-oriented systems and clear structure.

We’d love to find the right adoptive family for this very special boy.
