It’s hard not to notice how whip smart Lucien is. He’s an incredibly creative and intelligent kid who can really do wonders with a bunch of Legos. He has built some incredible structures out of those little colored blocks and is always proud to show them off to anyone who is interested. His ability to follow complicated instructions in order to create something intricate and beautiful is admirable.
His other passions in life include dining, movie theaters, computers, and shopping. When he is visited by the adults in his life, Lucien will inevitably ask to journey out to the theater, a restaurant, or out to shop. Lucien’s favorite restaurant is Panda Express and he has emphatically reported that he could eat orange chicken and white rice for every single meal.
Video games are a great motivator for Lucien, who enjoys spending time playing on the computer or his Xbox. Lucien has a great mind for technology and really understands it. He’ll gladly tell the people in his life all about his new favorite character from a video game or a Marvel superhero movie. Actually, he’s usually rocking his favorite character on his clothing, leaving no questions as to who he’s looking up to at the time.
Currently in the 6th grade, Lucien excels in technology based classes, and he’s doing great in school in general. As he continues to make progress with peer relationships, Lucien also works closely with his teacher to be successful with classroom expectations.
Lucien is also an exceptionally skilled artist who spends a lot of time drawing. When he sits down to put pencil to paper, he is able to create excellent and inspirational works of art. Not only is art a way for Lucien to express himself, it is a way for him to have some time to himself and reflect and relax. The other way Lucien likes to relax and have fun? Reading. Books are a hugely important part of Lucien’s life. He loves to read and can be entertained for hours by books.
Lucien is very close to a couple of his biological family members and would really like to remain in contact with them. His future adoptive family should support and encourage these significant relationships in his life.
Getting outside and being active for at least a little bit each day has a really positive influence on Lucien. An adoptive family who prioritizes health, happiness, and a bit of physical activity would be great for Lucien.
Lucien would do well with a family who can provide him with guidance, support, and a lot of love. Having a strong father figure in Lucien’s life would be really beneficial as well. Lucien responds well to positive rewards and appreciates a family who can openly communicate with honesty and encouragement. A family who is experienced and can commit to Lucien throughout his life will be the best match for this great kid.
