Wednesday’s Child: 7-Year-Old Ryan

Ryan is a very bright seven-year-old boy of Hispanic descent. Ryan enjoys playing the piano which he learned how to do in a very short amount of time. He also likes to play games on his tablet. Ryan does well in school and his teachers report he is ahead academically compared to some of the students his age. Ryan is currently in the first grade and reports he likes everything about school. He plays nicely with his peers and gets along well with his teachers. The structure of his school helps Ryan achieve academically.

Ryan is very close to his siblings, especially his twin. He has expressed wanting to find a family that will allow him to maintain contact with all of his siblings.

Legally freed for adoption, Ryan would do well in a family with two dads or a single dad. The home should have a lot of structure, nurturance and routines as Ryan responds well to this. He should be the only child in the home unless the other siblings were teenagers or much older in age. The family should be aware they need to maintain monthly visitation with Ryan’s siblings who are also in care in the state of Massachusetts.
