“Robert is an awesome child,” says one of his workers. It’s hard to argue since he’s also described as well-mannered, responsible and “a pleasure to be around,” which all sound pretty awesome. Robert is an outgoing, determined, energetic and friendly child who communicates well with others and “has great common sense.” He’s active, too. His favorite hobby is T-ball, which Robert enjoys so much that “he looks forward to the season yearly,” says his worker. Robert also enjoys playing video games, riding his bike and playing with his tablet.
Robert can become frustrated when things are not going his way. He needs a patient and understanding family who will advocate for the services that he needs now and into the future. Robert would thrive in a loving, stable and caring home environment. The family also should be able to help Robert deal with trauma and loss. Finally, since Robert has a strong bond with his older sister Areonna, his new family must be willing to let him continue that relationship.
