- Case #82215
Ashton is an energetic boy who loves to play football and video games. He also balances those pursuits with more creative outlets, like drawing and coloring. He is soft spoken and initially reserved, but once he gets to know you, he can be quite talkative and very personable. Ashton is sensitive and feels his emotions deeply, but he is gaining skills to help him cope with his frustrations and acceptance of the limits that his caregivers set for him. Ashton likes the companionship of peers and can be a leader of the group, but sometimes struggles to understand group dynamics. Ashton enjoys engaging in outings such as going to the movies, restaurants, and amusement parks. He has lots of interests and is ready to learn about new hobbies and have new experiences. Do you have a hobby that you could share with Ashton?
Ashton will do well in a home where he does not feel the need to compete for a parent's attention, but he would like to have other children in the home. The ideal parents will strike a balance between limit-setting and discipline with messages of love and acceptance to create a sense of security and positive self-regard. He will benefit from having a role model to help him learn positive peer interactions. Ashton has siblings who are not part of this adoption so it is important that his family be able to support frequent visits with his siblings. Ideally, he would like to live near his siblings in the northern part of Texas.
