Don’t be surprised if the next hit app is developed by Xavier. This incredibly intelligent kid is completely enamored with all things technology, from the hardware side of the world to the development side. Xavier spends a lot of time furthering his knowledge of how things work by taking apart and rebuilding electronics. Xavier also has some big ideas about tech that should developed, though he doesn’t quite have the means to invent anything quite yet. He’s a big fan of phones, games, tablets, computers, and any other complicated device that he somehow seems to understand quite easily. It’s important for Xavier to keep this hobby in his life, as it very well may turn into a career one day. Xavier's social worker says:
“He’s a genius with technology.”
Xavier also likes to spend time outside. As an enthusiastic kid, spending time outside is a great way for Xavier to burn off some energy. Xavier really likes to stay busy and tends to move quickly from one activity to the next. Besides his love of tech, Xavier really enjoys cars (he knows a lot of stats off the top of his head!), writing, drawing, making paper airplanes, and playing with Legos. He’s quite creative and is really talented at drawing and coming up with new ideas. Recently, Xavier has discovered Magic: The Gathering and is very enthusiastic about it! Trading Magic cards with his friends and collecting cards for himself has been a fun adventure for him.
Currently in the 7th grade, Xavier does best when he has extra educational support. An adoptive family who is excited to help Xavier as he continues to navigate his education would be really beneficial. Xavier is continually working on his social skills, as well. He’s a super friendly kid who really appreciates a good conversation and he’d love to make some new friends. Xavier is great at talking about anything technological and he’s also quite curious and inquisitive and will ask the right questions to discover something new.
Xavier really wants to be adopted; to belong to a home. An adoptive family who can help Xavier learn and build connections and have positive relationships would be a great thing for him. Xavier is empathetic and kind and deserves to find the right adoptive family. He will do well in a two parent home, and wouldn't mind being an only child, though all families are welcome to inquire. A family who shares Xavier’s Mexican American heritage would be an especially great fit for him, as his culture is important. As his social worker states:
"... he really wants to belong in a family, where he feels love and he can love as well."
His social worker goes on to say Xavier "can be very articulate and can advocate for what he wants and needs.” If you can envision Xavier in your family, please reach out to us! We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
