Wednesday’s Child: 11-Year-Old Ariel

BOSTON (CBS) – Ariel is a sweet and engaging 11-year-old boy of Hispanic descent with a love for science, remote control toys and playing sports with his friends.

Building with K’Nex, arts and crafts and playing all kinds of games are also counted as favorite activities.

Though Ariel is currently not taking any formal music lessons, he shows artistic abilities. He likes tinkering on the piano and other instruments at his after-school program, and he particularly enjoys rock music. Ariel also loves to draw and is quite the artist.

WBZ-TV’s Jack Williams reports

Ariel does well in his current foster home where he is a good listener and follows the rules. He has a great sense of humor and can be quite talkative. Ariel is meeting with success in school, where he has made improvements with the help of his Individualized Educational Plan. He works hard at paying attention, attending to tasks and completing his homework. Ariel is always reading and reads above his grade level. He continues to utilize supports to help him deal with feelings of loss.

Legally free for adoption, Ariel would do well in a family of any constellation, with or without other children. A family where he will be loved and supported and one that is open to maintaining contact with his birth mother, sister and his visiting resource is ideal. With many varied interests and a gift for gab, Ariel has much to bring to a nurturing and open family with lots of love to share.
