Zahmir from Pennsylvania
Zahmir is an endearing boy with dark curly hair, big brown eyes, and an incredible smile. He is fond of music and enjoys playing music on his piano. He has a natural talent and makes composing and playing look easy! Zahmir loves being tickled, playing with puppets and watching Nick Jr. on television. He enjoys being able to run and play outdoors; he especially likes digging in the sandbox. He'll wear you out at a playground! Zahmir has made great strides in his development, despite his diagnosis of Autism. This school year Zahmir began attending a new program and he is doing exceptionally well and making great progress. With one on one support through the school day and into the evening, he is showing improvement. Working closely with his teacher and a team of professionals, he has progressed academically, and has begun socializing within the classroom. His teacher is very proud of him! Zahmir does well in a structured environment and responds well to redirection. He needs an active, nurturing, and patient forever family who will fully commit to giving him attention, supervision, and support. His family must be able to meet his medical and behavioral needs and be willing to engage in an extended period of visitation prior to placement, to help his transition to their home. Zahmir is legally free for adoption.
