Qua’Von has stated that he would prefer an adoptive family with a mother and father and older siblings. He prefers the country but would be fine living in an urban area. The adoptive family should have knowledge or experience in parenting children who have emotional and developmental needs. The family should be understanding that it can be difficult for Qua’Von to form trusting relationships with others, due to his past, and he benefits from time and understanding as he learns to open up to others. The family will need to be committed to being an active advocate for Qua’Von at school and in the community. The adoptive family must be open to seeking out and continuing any support services that is beneficial to Qua’Von’s well-being. It is important to Qua’Von that he is able to maintain close contact with his brother as they share a close bond with each other.
