He also enjoys swimming and his swimming lessons. His favorite school subject is gym class and his favorite sports are wrestling and football. He's also a proud Philadelphia Eagles fan.

His caregivers have found small snacks, like Skittles and Goldfish, to be an effective positive reinforcement for his behaviors throughout the day. His caregivers characterize him as a bright and endearing child who can be affectionate towards others by being helpful, offering hugs, and sharing loving words. Caregivers have further noted that with his big bright blue eyes, he's extremely ?cute? and that he knows it. He can be very charming, and is able to bring a smile to those around him even on days that are difficult. Jared has a strong, positive relationship with his former guardian whom he calls ?nana? and needs a family that will support and encourage this relationship through regular contact and visits within the Central Pennsylvania area. Jared is not yet free for adoption; however, when a family is identified, the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
