David is in need of an adoptive family that can provide him a loving, consistent and stable home. He has expressed to his worker on numerous occasions that he would like to be part of a family. The ideal adoptive family will need to encourage and advocate for him in the school setting to ensure all his needs are being met. David would also benefit from guidance on establishing appropriate skills in social settings where he may feel uncomfortable. The family must be able to provide David with positive reinforcement, consistency and promote his involvement in his extra-curricular activities. David would do best with an experienced family where he could have the opportunity to grow and flourish.
