Elijah from Pennsylvania
Elijah is a typical boy, who enjoys being active. Although he definitely has a preference for football, he likes playing all sports. He would like the opportunity to play on an organized team and loves talking about various sports players and teams. Elijah likes being outside in the fresh air and exploring the community; however, he does enjoy playing video games too. Elijah has a fondness for superheroes, so don't be surprised if he asks, ?Who do you think is better?? There is no wrong answer but be prepared to explain your choice. This is what makes Elijah open to new ideas as he enjoys exploring other people's thoughts. Elijah also remembers the little things about a person that others may overlook or take for granted. Elijah is far from being shy and can connect with people quickly. He is an affectionate, sweet, and caring youth and expects big hugs from the people he knows. Elijah would do best in a family who will provide him with love, support, consistency, and structure. He would do well in a home with a strong and active male role model, and in a home with other children around his own age. Elijah has a close relationship with his twin brother and an older sibling who reside in separate homes. Visitation among the siblings is highly recommended and encouraged. Parental rights have been terminated for Elijah.
