Eight-year-old Luke needs an adoptive family! His caregivers describe him as “sweet,” “pleasant” and “kind.” Like many younger children, he can be shy around new people but warms up when he is with people he knows well!
Some of Luke’s favorite activities are playing with Legos, cars and trains (or anything with wheels!) and watching cartoons. He is open to trying new things and has recently begun learning to play table tennis, draw and sculpt with clay! Luke also enjoys playing outside and loves to go to the park.
Luke’s teachers say that Luke gets along well with his classmates, likes to help out around the classroom and does well academically, especially in English and math.
Luke is in good overall health and is diagnosed with autism. Through his own hard work and with guidance, Luke has made good progress managing his behavior. His foster mother has been impressed with how quickly he learns and believes “he is a child full of potential.” He follows rules, raises his hand in class, cleans up after himself, is on his best behavior in public and communicates his feelings to his caregivers.
The ideal adoptive family for Luke will be accepting, patient and loving. Luke needs an adoptive family with access to excellent educational and therapeutic resources who can provide a consistent schedule.
