Watch out for a between the legs dribble and a behind the back pass when Harley is on the basketball court. He’s a razzle-dazzle kind of kid. “Harley believes his greatest strength is being athletic, and he wishes to be an NBA star when he grows up,” says his worker. In addition to basketball, Harley dazzles on the soccer field. He’s razzling and dazzling at drawing, too, and draws mighty fine Simpson characters. His taste in food could be described as sizzling since Harley loves barbecue as in ribs, pork chops, pulled pork and steaks. Oh, and how about a side of cheesy potatoes, please? Perhaps after dinner you can find Harley working on puzzles, playing video games, listening to music, especially Eminem, or making crafts out of duct tape. On weekends, Harley likes to get up early, watch television, go outside when the weather is warm and play games. Overall, Harley is described as a sweet, funny and outgoing boy. When he’s asked about the qualities he wants in a forever family, Harley says he wants a dad, and he wants a family who enjoys being active like he is.
“Harley is a caring and thoughtful young man who enjoys being around people,” says his worker. “He has great relationships with others and is a joy to spend time with.” Harley benefits from a structured home environment.
Harley would do best in a two-parent or a single male family with a strong support network. His new parent or parents must understand how his past trauma could impact Harley. A forever family for Harley must be strong advocates for the services that will help Harley function at his best. In addition, Harley would do best as the only or youngest child in his new family. His new family also must be willing to let Harley maintain his relationship with his older brother.
