Cordell is drawn to the water; its unexplored depths, its beauty, the creatures that live within it. He loves to fish, his latest passion is magnet fishing, and would be so excited for his family to enjoy the hobby as well. Even when he isn’t fishing, Cordell loves to just explore the outdoors. He seems at his happiest when he is connecting with nature, however when indoors, Cordell finds his happiness in reading and building with LEGOs.
A big animal guy, Cordell really seems to connect with them. He has stated that he’d love an adoptive family who has pets, or who would get a pet. Cordell is currently most interested in a pet bird!
Cordell is very kind and gentle toward other humans as well. He’s a great advocate for his peers and has a big heart. He’s a natural sharer and tries hard to make connections with those around him. Cordell plays well with other kids his age and responds positively to adult supervision. He thrives in a healthy one on one situation, both academically and when playing with others.
Currently in the 8th grade, Cordell is best able to focus in a small classroom environment with a teacher or mentor who can spend time with him. Being able to attend school in person is really helpful for Cordell’s learning style.
Cordell is an awesome kid who is looking for the right adoptive family. As he continues to learn more about how to take time to himself when he needs it, Cordell will really benefit from the love and support of the right adoptive family. He would prefer to be an only child, though Cordell’s social worker believes he would also do well with older siblings. A patient adoptive family who is supportive, outdoorsy, and loving would be ideal.
If you can see Cordell in your family, please reach out to us! We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.
