Rocky’s adoptive parents should be willing to help him with his need to feel in control and give him one-on-one attention. He would do best in a family who can help him cope with his past trauma. Rocky would love to have older brothers but no younger siblings. He also said he would like a family who would allow him to play with his airsoft guns and mentioned that he would like a pet. Lastly, Rocky has a relationship with his older sister and a family should be open to letting him maintain that relationship.
