Jeffrey B. | May 2022

I hope you like the outdoors! This young man could spend the whole day at the Splash pad, in the backyard, or at the neighbourhood park. 11-year-old Jeffrey also loves to go to the beach and lie in his hammock. When he is not outside, he likes to watch movies and videos on his iPad. He loves anything that spins, including himself!  His favourite toy is a “Bop It” toy, which has noises and buttons. He also like construction toys, such as drills, which have noise and vibration.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Personality Academics
Jeffrey is generally calm and is always happy to sit and look at books as well as have someone read to him. His favourite books include pictures of animals and bright colours. He likes making the noises of the animals, especially if someone does this with him. In school, Jeffrey completes table-top activities and school activities with the support of his caregivers. He is not fearful! He likes to ride roller coasters and play on the biggest slide in the park.  Jeffrey loves to go to school! He is in a mainstream classroom with the support and assistance of a full-time Educational Assistant. A special program at school was designed just for Jeffrey. He enjoys seeing his teachers, his favourite is Mrs. B, his Educational Assistant. 

Jeffrey’s current caregivers are helping him develop his language, life skills and social skills. He would benefit from the support of occupational, speech and language therapists, as he has had these supports in the past with great success.

Openness Special Considerations
Jeffrey would benefit from some form of openness with his birth mother through the exchange of letters and pictures. He gets along well with everyone in his home. Jeffrey has a special relationship with his former foster family, who he visits with almost every month. His foster mother says that his eyes melt her heart and they have lots of fun together. Jeffrey would love to have a relationship with her after he is adopted. When Jeffrey was young, his care circle noticed that he was developing at a different rate than his peers. As soon as they figured out what support he needed, he quickly learned so much! He can get dressed and brush his teeth, with a little help from his caregivers. He enjoys helping out at home, especially when he gets to press the buttons on the dishwasher or vacuum! He helps set and clear the table and carry laundry.
Matching Considerations Questions?
Jeffrey’s ideal family will accept and embrace him for who he is. His permanency family will be patient, nurturing, consistent parents who will be his advocates and celebrate his accomplishments. Ideally he will be matched with a family who shares his Catholic/Christian religious beliefs. Please see Jeffrey B.’s profile on the AdoptOntario Waiting Children list with the case ID 4977.
