ACTIVE 7-YEAR-OLD NEEDS SECURE, ATTENTIVE FAMILY

Gary was born in September 1983 and is a stocky, active child who likes to wrestle, tumble and ride his bike. He also enjoys computer games and listening to music.

Gary has not been able to do well in school and has developmental delays and learning disabilities. His primary difficulties appear to come from behavior problems he's exhibited as a result of past abuse and neglect. He seems to respond best to individual adult attention. The special classes and intensive therapy of a residential treatment center have been needed.A small family where Gary would receive the structure and security to help him continue to learn more positive behaviors is considered best for him. Because of difficulty in getting along with other children, he probably should be the youngest or only child. A two-parent family or a single father is preferred.

Financial assistance is available to help with the costs of adopting and parenting Gary.
