John is an active 8 year old who thoroughly enjoys the outdoors/playing outside. He enjoys playing board games and card games such as chutes and ladders, trouble, and go fish. He is very curious and loves to carry on conversations. When he is in a new place, he wants to discover what everything is and how it works. John wants very much to have a family, especially if they have (or are open to getting) a dog! John can be a very happy youngster, and also loves school where he can learn lots of new things. At his group home, he is known for being the child who will help others feel better when they are feeling anxious or upset. John is longing for a loving family who can help make him feel safe. Could you be that family?
