Meet Phineas, he’s twelve years old! Phineas needs a family who will love and nurture him so he can reach his potential.

Caregivers describe Phineas as a quiet, introverted, and playful boy. Phineas is close to his favorite caregiver, and they have a trusting bond. When Holt staff visited Phineas in person, it took him awhile to get comfortable in the new environment. But once he got comfortable, he was playful and active. He enjoyed interacting with the other boys in the room.

Caregivers say he often perseveres when things get difficult. He follows rules and understands the difference between right and wrong. Phineas says his favorite subject is math and his favorite movie is Transformers. He loves eating spaghetti, fried gyoza, potato chips and Thai bubble tea. When he grows up, he hopes to be a firefighter.

Phineas’s caregivers believe he will benefit from individualized attention in an adoptive family. Phineas needs a family that will provide a safe, loving and nurturing home environment, so his self-confidence can continue to grow. His parent(s) should have a warm demeanor and be willing to learn how to use TBRI® techniques.

Phineas’s face is covered here due to country restrictions on privacy, but we have more photos and videos to share with prospective families. Holt staff have also met Phineas in person and would love to talk to prospective adoptive parents about their impression of him!
