Wednesday’s Child: 14-Year-Old Tyler
BOSTON (CBS) – Tyler is a bright, personable 14-year-old Caucasian boy who is fun to spend time with. Shy at first, Tyler can be talkative once he warms up, and he has a wonderful sense of humor. He can be very loving and nurturing, and does especially well with the younger child in his foster home.
Tyler is a high school freshman at a vocational school, where he shows interest in carpentry. In his spare time, he enjoys sports, playing video games and chatting on the computer to his friends. Baseball is a new pastime of his and he looks forward to trying out for the school team. Last year, he enjoyed being in the Civil Air Patrol.
WBZ-TV’s Jack Williams reports.
Tyler aspires to finish school and work with cars.
Tyler’s social worker would like to place him in an active, sports-orientated family, with a strong male role model. Tyler will need to continue using support services to address issues that stem from his past. He is currently living in a larger city but may do better in a smaller community.
He gets along well with his foster family including their young son. He would likely do best with younger or significantly older children in the home. Tyler is legally free for adoption.
