Described as a sweet kid, Peter is very caring and enjoys being around people. He has a variety of interests and pursuits. For fun and recreation, Peter enjoys playing games such as Geometry Dash, Fortnite, and Minecraft. He loves his LEGOs and his Hotwheels cars. He has also enjoyed riding his bike outdoors, playing basketball, and fishing, but he’s typically more of a homebody. Peter also has an interest in playing music. Previously, Peter lived in a home with an electric piano and would plunk away and figure out songs with a teaching program the piano came with.
A fun fact: Peter’s favorite day of the year is April Fools’ Day! Each year, he looks forward to playing a few practical jokes, but he doesn’t just reserve his pranks until then! He loves coming up with funny names and characters all year long. He also really likes Christmas.
Peter enjoys school (6th grade!) and shows lots of academic potential. While he has recently struggled some with math, he has actively participated in opportunities outside of class to raise his grades. Peter really appreciates extra support to stay focused and attentive. His former teachers have wondered if there's a little genius inside of him. With the right support at home, Peter will be able to reach his full academic potential.
Peter is showing a nice sense of independence by taking responsibility for getting himself up and ready for the day. While it can take Peter some time to warm up to new people, and new environments, once he gets to know you and things become more familiar and comfortable, his friendly personality comes through.
Couples and single moms who would welcome the opportunity to parent and mentor a smart, caring boy will want to learn more about Peter! Peter will do best in a home with either no other children or older children to be his pal and mentor. An adoptive family who will cheer Peter on in his academic pursuits and incorporate his interests into family activities would be a great fit.
If you’re interested in learning more about Peter, please let us know! We are excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
