There are so many great things to say about Tyson, from his dedication to school to his interest in just about any hobby. A great way to explain who Tyson is comes from one of his previous caseworkers, who has said:

“Tyson is eager to explore the world and gain new knowledge.”

For fun, Tyson enjoys science experiments, puzzles, reading, playing with LEGOs, or playing any kind of game—board, card, or video! Outside, Tyson really likes to go hiking, play in a park, or ride his bike around the neighborhood. Something Tyson also enjoys that would be a great activity for his future family—exploring museums! But let's get to his favorite pastime, sports!

Tyson is all about sports from football to bowling and he's always ready to try something new! This past year Tyson discovered a love for baseball and in true Tyson form, he dove in headfirst learning the rules, studying MLB games on TV, starting a baseball card collection and joining his school's baseball team. In his own words, "I went from knowing almost nothing about baseball, to knowing just about everything!" And his favorite team? The Mariners of course! It's no surprise that for his In-Depth Profile he wanted to show off his new skills and knowledge. One way he chose to do that was by talking about his favorite players and recreating their batting stances in this video.

Learning is invigorating to Tyson, who excels academically. Recently finishing up 7th grade and heading into 8th, he continues to be a motivated and responsible student. School is an enjoyable part of his life, and Tyson works hard to do well, sometimes even completing extra work ahead of time. Tyson intends to be a professional baseball player and when he retires from that, he would like to be a sports broadcaster and/or an umpire!

If you need a helping hand, Tyson is your guy. Proactive and helpful in all aspects of his life, whether it’s at home, school, or out in the community, Tyson is the kind of kid who wants to make life a little easier for those around him. Any chance to support the community, and he will undoubtedly be in

Tyson is eager to move somewhere (his preference is to stay right here in Washington) he can call home. What’s a good fit for him? Well, he’s an intelligent, thoughtful, friendly kid who would be great in any loving home. Tyson is super friendly and enjoys one-on-one time with both adults and people his own age. His conversation skills are wonderful and he always gives his full attention.

Generally speaking, Tyson thrives in a supportive environment. This great kid would like to be adopted by the right family, and as mentioned above, he and his team especially want to hear from families in Washington! He feels most comfortable in environments that offer him structure while also setting boundaries and offering lots of love and support. We’re hopeful we can help him find that.
