Jeremy is a sweet 13-year-old Hispanic boy with black hair and big brown eyes. He has a strong desire to learn when he feels that he is doing well at something. Jeremy has a great smile that lights up the room and a great sense of humor. He loves art and interacting with other children during sport activities and at the Boys and Girls Club.
Jeremy is typically a very friendly and loving child, but can be very shy at times. He does very well talking with his foster parent, but becomes shy around others. Jeremy has a history of aggressive behaviors, although his foster parent says these behaviors generally occur at school.
Jeremy has a hard time with school and needs extra help with his academics. He switched to a specialized school this last fall and has made significant improvements with his behaviors. Jeremy also seems to be more engaged with his school work. His teacher from a previous school says that he is at a Kindergarten level academically after reviewing his Neuro Psychological Evaluation results.
Jeremy has been adopted previously and is looking for a family to call his forever home. He currently has visits with his mother and a few other children in her home every other week. Both Jeremy and his mother want to continue visits at this time. Jeremy would do well with siblings in the home. He has done well with younger siblings in the past and would do very well with older siblings who can model appropriate behaviors. Jeremy would also do well with pets. He has good responsibility in caring for a pet. Jeremy does best in a home that is relatively structured and calm.
Jeremy is a 13-year-old boy who is looking for a loving and caring family able to give him the love and care he needs and deserves.
