Jacob, an explorer at heart, is a kid who is quite at home in the great outdoors; the smell of pine trees, sound of a waterfall, and a meal under a clear night sky are just a few things that draw Jacob to outdoor adventures. Camping, fishing, walking, and short hikes—really anything at all out in nature is where he is most relaxed and happy. Jacob loves animals too, of all kinds, and feels a real connection with them. When he’s not exploring, Jacob also likes some down time which can include playing Xbox games, especially Minecraft.
Learning best by doing, Jacob does well with hands-on activities. Currently in 5th grade, Jacob benefits from one-on-one attention and structure when it comes to school and learning habits. He has a great imagination, and in the past has enjoyed drawing. An adoptive family who will continue to encourage his strengths and help him continue to make gains in his education will be great for Jacob.
Jacob has a close relationship with his biological sister. An adoptive family who will support and encourage that bond will be essential.
Jacob is a loving kid with a big, awesome smile and an even bigger heart who really wants a family to call his own. Jacob would appreciate if his adoptive family shared his love and enthusiasm for nature and animals. He’s also mentioned that he’d be happy in a family with dogs and other kids, as well as a yard to play in! Jacob will be most comfortable with consistent structure and stability, patience and lots of encouraging attention. A family who would be excited about an occasional treasure hunt would be a wonderful bonus!
