For Isaaiah, no holiday tops the beachgoing, the cookouts and the fireworks during Fourth of July. Isaaiah especially loves swimming and lounging on the beach on weekends during the summer. A couple of his other favorite weekend activities are playing video games and reading books. “Isaaiah loves history books, especially ones about the Roman Empire and dystopian books such as the Hunger Games,” says one of his close adults. But truth be told, Isaaiah loves being outdoors whether it’s on the weekend or any other day. He enjoys camping, shooting hoops and playing football, and he hopes to participate on a team during the school year. Since he’s such a history buff, Isaaiah lists history class as his favorite subject in school. His favorites list also includes pizza for food, dogs for animal and blue for color. Instead of becoming a history teacher, Isaaiah wants to enforce the law when he gets older. “I want to be a police officer so I can help people who need it,” he says. If Isaaiah had a genie in a bottle, he’d wish to own a dog and to be adopted. He says he wants a nice family of any makeup. Some of the fun things Isaaiah hopes to do with his new family include watching movies, playing family games and going camping.

When he’s asked what he takes the most pride in, Isaaiah says, “How smart I am. I like to know fun facts – history – and to learn new things every day.” Adds one of his close adults, “Isaaiah is a loving and sweet boy who wants to be adopted by a loving family. Isaaiah is extremely resilient and is able to have hard and complex conversations for his age while remaining optimistic. His strengths include being open to new ideas. He is polite, and he cares deeply for others. Isaaiah could be described as an old soul who will often make “dad” jokes, and he likes making people laugh.

Isaaiah should be in a forever family with one or two caring parents who are experienced and trauma informed. His new parent or parents must make sure that Isaaiah receives the services he needs. Isaaiah can be placed in a home with or without other children. He hopes for a forever family who has pets, especially dogs.
