It’s pretty easy to get Kevin to pop out of his shell and make him happy. All you need to do is start some music to get the normally shy guy singing and dancing. In fact, one of his workers calls Kevin an energetic and outgoing boy who has a great sense of humor. “Kevin is one of the funniest kids I’ve met,” says the worker. “He teaches me all the new songs and dances that go along with them.” Kevin says his favorite thing to do on the weekend is write and sing. His favorite after-school activity is playing basketball on the Xbox, his favorite game. Kevin is athletic and hopes to participate in basketball and soccer. When it’s time to eat, serve Kevin some macaroni (his favorite food). If Kevin could visit anywhere, he’d travel to Mars. He’s not sure why, though it could be because it’s the Red Planet and red is his favorite color. Kevin wants people to know he’s a good singer and dancer. He also takes pride in his handwriting skills. When he gets older, Kevin wants to become a police officer. If his wishes come true, Kevin would get a job, appear on “America’s Got Talent” and write his own songs. When he’s asked about the qualities he wants in a future forever family, Kevin shows again that he’s easily pleased. He simply wants a family who likes to go to fun places together.
Kevin is “eager to please others and is warm-hearted,” but “sensitive to criticism and praise.” Kevin benefits from having structure and receiving reminders to stay on task. “At school, he works hard and gets along well with his peers,” his worker says. Kevin also benefits from extra attention when he’s in school.
Kevin prefers to have a single mom. Kevin’s new forever family must be strong advocates for the services that will benefit him now and into the future. The family would benefit from having experience with or knowledge of the impact of trauma on a child. Finally, since Kevin has strong bonds with his siblings, the family must be willing to let Kevin maintain those relationships.
