Hunter is a curious young man. In fact, his inquisitive nature helps him interact with others. “Hunter enjoys socializing and getting to know others,” his worker says. “He is curious and friendly.” Hunter is described as a friendly boy with a “mild disposition” and “big personality.” Two of his favorite pastimes are listening to music and playing video games. “Hunter is fascinated with electronics such as cell phones and tablets,” his worker says. He also loves being outside doing activities such as rollerblading and bike riding. Hunter’s other favorite things include the color gold and dogs, especially huskies and Dalmatians. When the supper bell rings, nothing will bring Hunter to the dinner table faster than fish, chicken, goulash or beef stroganoff. When he’s asked about the qualities he wants in a future forever family, Hunter says he wants one who’s loving and accepting.
Hunter struggles some with the loss of his former home and can struggle with peer relationships. He prides himself on the behavioral improvements he’s made. To function at his best, Hunter needs a vigilant caregiver. “Hunter responds best to a highly structured environment where he receives one-on-one attention,” his worker says. In school, Hunter receives assistance and does well academically. He says science is his favorite subject.
Hunter has stated a preference for a forever family with a mom and dad, which is exactly what his worker believes he needs. “A two-parent family will have the support of each other which is needed to care for Hunter,” says his worker. He would do best as the only child in the home. His family must be able to provide a structured environment and close supervision. In addition, his family must be strong advocates for the services that Hunter needs now and into adulthood. Finally, a home with a pet such as a dog would be appropriate, but Hunter states that he’s allergic to cats.
