That flow, that rhythm on the court where every shot is going in. These are some of the moments that Gabe loves most. And by playing basketball nearly every day, he’s been enjoying a lot these moments! If not striving on the court, it’s the field. He remembers being 6 years old, barely shouldering the weight of the pads, but still attempting to play quarterback! Now as a teen, he considers basketball to be his main sport.
Basketball is everything, but Gabe has other hobbies as well. Gabe is a skateboarder, a video game player, and a musician. He is a very social kid, with tight-knit friendships, and lots of people who care about him. A natural leader, Gabe is always at the front of the pack. His great sense of humor and charismatic persona lends itself to familiarity and comfort. Simply put, people enjoy hanging out with Gabe.
Currently in school, Gabe does best when he is motivated. He is a bright student who appreciates encouragement. With the right focus and energy, Gabe’s goals and future endeavors will definitely be a success. An adoptive family who is prepared to help Gabe navigate his remaining high school years will be really beneficial for him.
Those who know him refer to Gabe as a “super likable kid” who can always make you laugh. He can be reserved when you first meet, but Gabe opens up quickly. He genuinely enjoys being around people, and people enjoy being around Gabe. One really fun fact about Gabe is his high-end taste in everything from fashion to cologne. He can spot a Coach bag or a pair of fashionable jeans from a mile away. When Gabe is an adult, he would like to make enough money to supplement his life of luxury. (Or at least be able to have a few nice cologne options.)
Gabe has a very close and special relationship with his grandmother. He is able to visit and chat with her and would appreciate continuing this bond even as he transitions into an adoptive family. His grandmother is incredibly important to him, and a family who can understand and support that relationship would be the best for Gabe.
Gabe would thrive in a stable family, and does especially well with a calm and consistent male role model. He likes animals and would be happy with brothers and sisters. Gabe is a goal-oriented teenager who wants to be supported as he finishes high school and transitions to his adult life. A family who can guide Gabe in the transition from his later teenage years to young adulthood would be incredibly beneficial for him.
He wants to have a family to love and support him, and a place to call home. If you are interested in learning more about this creative and driven teen, please let us know. We would really like to find Gabe the permanent family support that he deserves.
