Arlo from Florida
Arlo spends his spare time listening to music, engaging in video games, or playing basketball with friends. He plays on his school's basketball team which makes him very proud. Arlo is responsible when it comes to making purchases with his allowance, always dressing himself appropriately and boy does he love shoes! He is a boy of faith and his honesty is rarely questioned. Arlo needs someone who is patient while he learns to trust and to give respect. Once he has established confidence in someone, he will do anything within his power not to disappoint them. Having a strong role model and a supportive environment would be a primary asset for this child. Arlo is intelligent and reasons well for a young man of his age. He occasionally needs assistance controlling his emotions and impulses when he gets upset. He can be sweet and loving, but sometimes projects a hard demeanor in an effort to portray that he's cool or protect himself. Arlo would prefer a mom and dad of African American descent. He has two younger siblings and regular communication is desired.
