Wednesday’s Child: 14-Year-Old Seth
BOSTON (CBS) – Seth is a bright, complex and charismatic 14-year-old Caucasian boy who could have a bright future ahead.
Despite the losses and difficulties Seth has faced in his life, he’s resilient and hopeful about still finding a permanent home where he can belong. Seth and his social worker feel that he has a lot to offer in a family setting.
Currently, Seth lives at a residential home and attends the ninth grade at a technical school. He names math, computers, science and art among his favorite subjects. Seth particularly enjoys drawing and carpentry.
Academically, Seth has done well. He has received services from an Individualized Education Plan to address his emotional and behavioral challenges, and may continue to need extra support. Seth has set his sights on potentially becoming an architect in the future.
In his spare time, Seth states that he has typical teen interests. He loves playing video games, listening to music and watching television. He enjoys most sports, including baseball and soccer, and describes himself as competitive and energetic.
Legally free for adoption, Seth would do best in a home with a single mom or a two-parent family in which he could get plenty of attention as an only child or the youngest without siblings close to his age. Seth would benefit from a patient, understanding family that can provide him with structure, consistency and clear expectations.
An ideal family for Seth would be experienced parents who would be invested and committed to seeing Seth reach his full potential.
