Scott is a young man who is described as very smart, kind, generous, observant and creative. He entered a child care center in 2002 and then a foster home in 2003, where he helps by washing his own clothes, cooking rice for the family, and washing dishes. Scott is stated to have had a healthy birth and to be in good health currently. As of November 2012, we weighed about 62lbs and was about 4 1/2 feet tall. His development is also reportedly on target, including very good hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, and he enjoys running, climbing, playing soccer, riding his bicycle, and free-hand drawing cartoon characters. Scott is reported to be doing well in the sixth grade of school, using more verbal communication to express his feelings, and has age appropriate self-care skills. He is noted to read with very good comprehension, write short stories, and know some English words. Scott enjoys playing folk music with his school band and would love to be an animator or music composer one day. He also gets along well with friends, of which he has three best friends. He has been to a counseling session about intercountry adoption and states that he would love to have a family adopt him. He is described as a leader, so he needs a family who will be able to accommodate that trait, and who also understands the behavioral impact of grief and loss. Experience parenting past his age and with adoption is also preferred.
To adopt this child, there should be no more than 45 years age difference between the younger parent and the child. Families with no more than 2 children in the home preferred, though there may be flexibility on a case-by-case basis. * See country criteria for complete requirements.
