Holt Adoptee Camp Kicks Off in July! Register Now →

Meet Jonathan! He is 13 years old. He needs a family who will give him the attention and bonding time he needs to reach his full potential. Could you or someone you know be the right family for Jonathan?

Jonathan is described as introverted, quiet and an observer. He is the type of teen to sit back and observe before jumping into all the action. When he is comfortable in a situation, he is cheerful, affectionate and talkative. His caregivers say he has a subtle sense of humor, too! They also describe him as adaptable and accepting of others.

At school, Jonathan stands out because of his academic performance and responsibility. He is happiest when he is active. He loves playing volleyball, basketball and soccer. Some of his other interests include board games, listening to music, watching movies and riding bikes. Jonathan loves animals and hopes to live in a family with pets one day!

The ideal family for Jonathan should be familiar with TBRI techniques and have access to psychological resources to help him process through past experiences.

If you think you or someone you know could be the right family for Jonathan, please email our waiting child team at [email protected]! Jonathan’s face is covered here due to country restrictions on privacy. However, we do have more photos available to share with prospective families.
