Robert’s rules of order have nothing to do with parliamentary procedure or governmental meetings. His first and foremost rule is that comics and basketball rule. Period. End of discussion. Well, maybe some discussion since Robert really loves other things as well such as singing and listening to music. Food seems to be on his mind often. For instance, he likes the major holidays so he can eat well. If he could travel anywhere, Robert wants to visit Puerto Rico to sample the cuisine. In addition to food, Robert enjoys playing “a lot of games.” He likes the color white and enjoys spending time with dogs. If he could have his own breed of canine, Robert would choose German shepherd or husky. One of Robert’s biggest wishes is to have “a great family,” one who likes having fun together.“Robert is funny, outgoing and very personable,” says a person close to him. “He’s a pretty laid back youth. Robert is a great and loving youth. He is a great role model for other youth.”
Robert is open to one or two parents in his future forever family. His new parent or parents should be experienced and trauma informed. His parent or parents also must be strong advocates for the services that will help Robert function at his best. Finally, his new family must be open to letting Robert maintain his relationship with his siblings.
