If you are a family that loves fishing and camping, you will want to learn more about Johnathan! Jon loves nature and likes to think of himself as an explorer and adventurer. He is a fun, helpful guy who loves one-on-one time with adults. Johnathan enjoys riding bikes, hiking, going to the beach and swimming, and he has liked participating in other sports in the past. Playing with “Magic Cards” is a favorite activity, and he never says no to shopping or eating out at restaurants. With Jon’s inherent love and connection with animals (of all kinds!) he really would benefit from having them in his life. He would be overjoyed to have the opportunity to be able to care for animals in some capacity – perhaps as a volunteer at a shelter, or something similar. He’s really hoping his adoptive family loves pets and animals as much as he does!

Jon’s sense of humor continues to grow, and physically he is choosing to be active and to eat healthy foods. Adults around him have often been heard saying how energetic, fun, charming and generally terrific he is. Jon likes to be busy and helpful and likes to lend a hand anytime he can.
A good student, Jon enjoys school. He benefits from a small classroom environment, where he can get the support that helps him to do his best. An adoptive family who will team up with his school and advocate for his best interests will be a big boost for Jon as he continues with his education.
Currently, Johnathan is benefitting from participating in counseling to help lessen his feelings of sadness and anxiousness. It will be important for his adoptive family to support using such resources, and maybe even participate with him, especially has Jon settles into his new home.
Jon has a significant connection with his grandparents. He will be counting on this adoptive family’s help in maintaining this important relationship.
Jon responds very well to praise, encouragement and a calm, positive approach; and clear rules, limits, and consequences help him feel most secure. An adoptive family who will set him up for success by preparing him for new experiences, helping him have “just family” time to adjust, and giving him the high level of supervision that helps him excel could be a great fit for Jon. It will be particularly important for his adoptive parent(s) to be able to give Johnathan the time he will need to build trust.
Jon really wants to bond and belong to a family! While Jon would love to have a dad and a mom, he says he would also do well with a single parent who would like to spend lots of one-on-one time with him. To assure he’ll have plenty of one-on-one time, he should be the only child in the home. He will do best in a structured adoptive home with a very consistent daily routine. Johnathan would love to live in a rural area (with animals!), although he could be a great city boy, too, especially if there is lots of green space for him to explore and a good fishing hole nearby. If you think you could be the family for Jon, please contact us soon!
