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, attending day camps in the summer, dancing and singing, and socializing.

Robert really thrives with 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 loves to talk and be heard!

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.

Robert loves watching movies and TV shows, and will tell you all about his favorite characters, even scary ones!

Robert is always ready to settle in for a movie night!

Now in middle school, Robert is enjoying his classes and is doing very well. As he continues to navigate his school years, the support and guidance of an adoptive family would be so beneficial for him.

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. Families who have experience with children and the proper resources and tools to rely on would be the best fit for Robert. If you would like to learn more about Robert, please let us know!

We’d love to find the right adoptive family for this awesome kid.

Beyond the Profile: Robert truly is a puzzle whiz, and the video we created together doesn't even begin to get past the surface of his love for puzzles. When he showed us the boxes of puzzles stacked against the wall, I was blown away by how many he had, and even more impressed when he told me he had solved all of them already! A true strategist, Robert shared with me how he solves puzzles so well. Between the puzzling and extensive conversations about his favorite movies and shows, I got to know so much more about Robert. He's a charming, funny, engaging kid who deserves an adoptive family who is down for a puzzle and movie night.
