Name: Pat
Age: 9

My Favorite Things:
I love soccer and learning about Egypt.

Things that I do not like:
I do not like things to be chaotic or loud, and I don’t enjoy not having a family.

Activities I Enjoy:
I enjoy being around animals, I like to laugh, and I want to learn as much as I can. I am a good reader, I enjoy listening to music, and I like to draw.

My Strengths:
I am intelligent, imaginative, and artistic. I am sensitive and resourceful. I want to be a good friend and I can tell adults what I need.

What We Want Families to Know about Him:
Pat is a child who has expressed significant trauma and losses in his life, and he needs a family that is willing to actively participate in therapy with him. Pat is a child who has difficulty with transitions, so he will need an established pattern to bring stability to his life.

What We Are Seeking In a Family for Pat:
We seek a two parent home where Pat will be the youngest child. Pat needs a family who will provide an unconditionally stable and structured living environment where he can learn and develop trust. Pat could benefit from a family that has animals and a good sense of humor. We seek a family willing to help Pat feel safe in his home and community, and a family that is willing to help him with his self esteem and need for belonging. We also seek a family with knowledge of trauma and loss, and the effect of these factors on children.
