Wednesday’s Child: 11-Year-Old Jeffrey
BOSTON (CBS) – Jeffrey is a friendly and outgoing 11- year-old boy of Hispanic descent.
With a healthy sense of humor, Jeffrey likes making people laugh. He is curious and is interested in learning, as well as trying new activities. He is hoping to find a loving and supportive adoptive home where he feels like he belongs.
In his free time, Jeffrey loves playing video games and would like to join either a baseball or soccer team. He likes to draw, do arts and crafts and watch television and movies. Jeffrey also enjoys taking karate lessons. Jeffrey currently lives in a foster home where he is doing well and gets along with the other children in the home. Meeting with similar success in school, Jeffrey benefits from being a part of a therapeutic school setting.

Legally free for adoption, Jeffrey would do well in a family of any constellation, with or without other children. An active family that can work with Jeffrey on increasing his self-esteem would be ideal. Jeffrey enjoys contact with his siblings, which would need to continue after placement.
With the structure, stability, love and affection of a permanent family, Jeffrey will continue to triumph over the obstacles in his life and blossom.
