Justin is very responsive to positive regard, affirmations, and regular encouragement and support on the home front and in school. He loves to play and be on the move. Some favorite activities are playing baseball and video games, coloring, and swimming. He also enjoys being in Boy Scouts, and had fun participating recently in a car wash.
Justin is thriving in his new home, and having a foster dad who is a healthy male role model. There are other children in his new home, which provides Justin the opportunity to demonstrate his ability to maintain in a family setting with kids who are older and younger than he is. The structure, clear rules, expectations, and limits in the home all help Justin to stay on track. And he is benefiting greatly from his foster parents’ willingness to take time to provide the guidance and parental attention that he did not get in his early years.
Justin could thrive in any family where the parents will claim him as their own and provide the parental time and attention he needs to prosper and succeed. It will be more important for Justin to be surrounded by love than it is to look for a specific kind of family, although having a nurturing, attentive dad would be especially wonderful for this youngster.
