(MARE) – Zadrik is a healthy, friendly, talkative and pleasant fourteen-year-old boy of Hispanic descent. Zadrik is a home-body and likes to stay inside at home rather than going shopping or even taking a vacation. He is cautious about trying new things and is selective about what he eats. He loves to watch sports on TV but does not care to play sports except volleyball and flag football. He also loves to play wrestling video games.
Zadrik is very resourceful and is very good at advocating for himself. He has a few friends at school and tends to engage with younger children.
Legally freed for adoption, a very structured home and firm parenting style seems to works best with Zadrik. He would do well in most any family constellations with or without children as long as he receives love, attention and encouragement to help build his self esteem.
