Meet Venjamin

Throughout his life, Venjamin has touched the hearts of caregivers, teachers, and social workers. His social worker states that they “absolutely adore” Venjamin, as do most people who interact with him. Venjamin is often affectionate with those he has made connections with. His social worker witnessed this most recently during a day of hanging out where Venjamin was quick to saddle up next to his worker on the couch, even placing his head on their shoulder. So sweet! Venjamin deserves the best out of life from caring, committed, adoptive parents who will always be there for him.

Venjamin loves to watch PBS educational shows, play in the yard or playground, and color. He’s easily entertained by printing out coloring pages and allowing him to cut out and color each character. His current favorite pages include characters from: Madagascar 3, Paw Patrol, Superheroes, and Spongebob. He is most content when playing by himself, though when other children are around, he likes to play near them. One of Venjamin’s favorite pastimes is playing with small objects like his toy cars and trucks, though nothing beats his toy dinosaurs.

Venjamin smiles big and often and is always laughing. He loves spending time outdoors, going on walks, playing at parks. The swings are one of his favorite activities, though he really loves playing on the trampoline too. His most recent favorite outdoor activity he calls the “100 Run,” where he runs laps around a track counting to 100, always ensuring he ends right in front of his caregiver so he can get a high five and praise for a job well done.

Venjamin has become very passionate about basketball, another favorite outdoor activity. An adoptive family who enjoys playing or watching basketball would be a great fit for him. When he’s indoors relaxing, Venjamin would prefer to throw on his favorite television show – Spongebob Squarepants.

Venjamin is quick to learn names and make connections, even after meeting someone just once or twice. He speaks of past connections often and you’ll hear him speak of people who have made a lasting impact on him in random times of his life. He’s very intrigued by the world around him and eager to explore it when he sees something of interest.

Joseph, Venjamin's social worker, sits down to share what he loves about Venjamin and why he deserves an adoptive family!

Venjamin has done remarkably well in recent years, where a set routine has been extremely beneficial to him. Venjamin’s foster mom would love to see him adopted by a family that has time and attention to devote to him on a daily basis.

Venjamin is doing well in school, even considering the pandemic circumstances. He is most successful when he has an adult to help provide him with next steps and support him through his education. Though the pandemic was hard on most, Venjamin really excelled in meeting and surpassing his goals.

Venjamin’s social worker wants to hear from experienced couples and single parents with the patience and skills to provide Venjamin with the right life for him. An especially good fit would be a kind and loving family who lives in a strong community and who adheres to a structured routine. Venjamin deserves an adoptive family who is excited to love and support a great kid.
