Gilbert from Texas
Gilbert is a sweet, loving youth with a tender heart who aims to please. He enjoys a variety of activities including reading the Bible, learning about American history and Greek mythology, watching Disney movies, and playing sports. He has learned to play the saxophone by participating in band at school. Gilbert does well academically overall, but can use encouragement with reading. On occasion, Gilbert can use guidance with several daily living skills, including picking up after himself and maintaining a clean room. He can be cautious around people he does not know, but can quickly warm up after speaking to them about his interests and hobbies. He particularly loves playing video games, especially on his Nintendo DS. Some of his favorite foods are hot dogs, spicy wings, and hamburgers.
Gilbert is anxiously awaiting his forever family. He will benefit from a loving, patient, and nurturing family who will provide him with a structured and stable environment. He will thrive with a family who will build on his positives qualities, as well as set up reasonable, age appropriate limits with consequences that can be enforced consistently. Gilbert will thrive with parents who will provide step-by-step directions, encouragement, and role-modeling for his growth and development.
