Meet Elijah, a 10 year old boy who loves cartoons and coloring! He is a sweet, thoughtful young man who has yet to meet a school arts and crafts project he does not love, he really excels at drawing and painting. He is affectionate and loves being able to helpful either with running errands or chores around the house. He loves getting his hair cut, and he gets his wish because it grows fast! He loves spaghetti and meatballs and getting to go to pick out a treat at the convenience store as a reward for positive behavior.

Elijah has experienced a lot in his 10 years, so a family for him would need to have full commitment in weathering the tough days with him, knowing that the good days far number the days he might need a little help. When Elijah has good days you can see him glow! Elijah wants and needs connections in his life. It is of the greatest importance for Elijah to have adoptive parents who will love and cherish him, and who will make sure that he has regular opportunities to feel connected to his Native American heritage. A family who is patient and willing to help him learn and develop trust with caregivers through repetition, routine, predictability, consistency, and accountability is what he needs. Will you be Elijah’s family?
