Taylor has been blessed with beautiful blue eyes and a charming smile. When we met him on a chilly day at the Wildlife World Zoo, he was bundled up and donning a red knit cap, emphasizing his unique features all the more. But, his good looks have certainly gone unnoticed by Taylor who is a typical, energetic nine year old boy. Amanda, Taylor’s Adoption Recruiter, describes Taylor as “sweet, thoughtful and inventive.” And inventive is right. “He is always trying to make bows and arrows,” says his foster mom. “…he’ll find a stick outside and a rope and he will create a bow. And then he’ll look for the proper stick to make an arrow…he likes thinking about things and trying to build them.” Taylor has an outlet for his creativity and inventions through the local Cub Scouts. As a Cub Scout, he particularly enjoys participating in the Pack Meetings and Flag Ceremonies. When Taylor is not attending Cub Scout meetings or building forts, you will find him riding his scooter, playing Pokemon or pretending to be one of his favorite super heroes – Superman, Spider-Man and Batman. Taylor is enjoying school and has a wonderful teacher who is able to meet his needs and help him find answers when he’s not able to find them by himself.
When asked about the ideal family for Taylor, Amanda tells us, “Due to his past trauma, Taylor has special needs. So the ideal family would be a two-parent family with strong parenting skills…” Taylor does great with structure and would thrive as an only child.
