Isaac takes a hands-on approach to gain the satisfaction he desires in his young life. His worker says Isaac prefers the hands-on method because “it helps him to maintain focus.” One of his favorite hands-on activities is cooking. “Isaac loves to cook, especially pancakes,” says his worker. “He has recently begun an interest in gardening and is excited to begin his own garden at his foster home.” Isaac also enjoys doing arts and crafts and, of course, playing games. Isaac has a couple of other big interests including church. “Isaac is passionate about church and loves to socialize with adults,” says his worker. In addition to church, Isaac shows a huge interest in Harry Potter and wants to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida one day. He’d also like to have a family, one who shares Isaac’s interest in hands-on activities and perhaps who owns a pet. “He loves pets and would really like to have a cat,” says Isaac’s worker.
Isaac has experienced trauma. He can struggle with behavior and receives services to help him develop coping skills to manage his feelings. With supports in place, Isaac does well in school.
Isaac would do best with a mom and dad who can provide the support and one-on-one attention he needs. His new parents would benefit from knowledge of the impact of trauma on a child’s behavior and development. Isaac also would do best as the only or youngest child in his new family. In addition, he has expressed a desire to maintain his faith. Isaac’s new family must be strong advocates for the services he will need to thrive at home and in school. Finally, the family must be open to letting Isaac maintain contact with his siblings.
