Unlike his “Sesame Street” namesake, this Oscar is definitely no grouch. “Oscar is very silly; he has a good sense of humor,” says one of the people close to him. “Oscar has a sweet personality that given the right family, he will thrive.” This energetic and athletic young boy loves sports, playing outside and going swimming, on walks and to the park. Oscar likes riding bikes, playing basketball and jumping on a trampoline. He’s an adventuresome young lad who enjoys going to the zoo and to the beach. In the winter, Oscar likes going sledding. On his list of favorite things, Oscar includes the color red and chicken and macaroni. He’s a creative kid who enjoys doing arts and crafts, especially the ones involving shaping with scissors. When he’s asked the most important thing he wants others to know about him, Oscar responds, “I am a good boy who is loving and sweet.” In short, Oscar has all the qualities that will make him a good fit for a forever family. “He would like a family who lets him play outside and is nice,” adds one of Oscar’s close adults.
“Oscar is such a sweetheart,” says one of the adults close to him. “He loves to stand up for justice, looks out for the little guy and wants things to be fair. He desperately wants a family that he can be a part of. He needs a consistent and strict household.”
Oscar would do best as the only child in his new forever family, but it’s not mandatory. His new forever family must be strong advocates for the services that will help Oscar excel. They must be patient and willing to help Oscar feel safe in his new home. Finally, they must be open to letting Oscar maintain his sibling relationships.
