(MARE) – Alexander is a bright boy of Hispanic and African American descent. He is described as unique and wise beyond his years. Alexander enjoys Legos, electronics and is very tech savvy. Alexander is doing well in school and his educational team in the process of transitioning him from an IEP. While it takes him some time to form connections with others, he enjoys asking a lot of questions in order to get to know them. Alexander also does really well with consistency and a regular schedule.

Legally freed for adoption, the ideal family for Alexander would consist of any family constellation that can provide him the attention and support he needs, with a child or children within the same age range or older. If a single parent is interested, it is important that they are able to prioritize their time around his needs. It’s very important that Alexander maintains the connections and traditions he has developed with his two siblings, which includes regular contact through phone calls, cards during the holidays/ birthdays, and consistent visits either weekly, bi-weekly, or at least monthly.
