Age: 11 years old
With his awesome sense of humor, Tobias is a lot of fun to be around! An affectionate and friendly kid, Tobias is a great conversationalist with an engaging personality. He is super enthusiastic and is always eager to help others. The people in Tobias’s life enjoy conversing with him as much as he does. Tobias takes pride in his strengths, one of which is the ability to clearly follow directions. Family activities and outings are some of Tobias’s favorite activities, and he looks forward to experiencing even more with his future adoptive family. Tobias is an active and adventurous kid. Boating, intertubing, swimming, and jumping on the trampoline are just a few of the exciting adventures he has taken on. Tobias also enjoys playing video games, listening to music, fishing, and playing Ultimate Frisbee.
Recently, Tobias has been attending church and would really like to continue to do so with his adoptive family. He also looks forward to many more camping trips in his future.
Tobias is doing really well and has made noticeable progress when it comes to his ability to verbalize how he’s feeling and recognizing when he needs time to himself. He has a great time playing with other kids, and does especially well with younger children. Having a caring, attentive adult who can provide positive reinforcement is a huge benefit for Tobias.
Currently in the 6th grade, Tobias likes his school program where he is benefiting from a small classroom environment. Having lots of one-on-one time is great for his success in the classroom. Having an adoptive family who will be educational advocates for Tobias, and see that he has any the proper resources in place to meet his needs will be important.
Tobias has a very close relationship with his biological brother Caleb and enjoys being able to spend lots of time with him. He will want his adoptive family to help him maintain this important relationship. Additional, Tobias’s social worker would love to hear from families who are interested in potentially adopting the two brothers together.
Tobias is looking forward to being adopted! Tobias would do well in any family that can provide him with plenty of time and attention. Nurturing and loving couples or single moms and dads would be a great fit to match Tobias’s big heart. This social kid would do well with older or younger siblings – as long as they are excited to get out and go on adventures together! Active, fun-loving families who appreciate enthusiasm and a great sense of humor will be a great fit for Tobias.
