-Children to be adopted:
Aidan (02/02) is the typical type of teenager and 13 year old who loves to be alone and is a computer addict. He loves to code and game and is constantly asking for the newest game. He hates sports and is quite smart though he doesn’t let out how smart he really is,he’s quite insecure and has emotional problems such as Panic disorder and will occasionally go into a panic attack about his insecurities,very very rarely he’ll get too stressed about a game and may have a panic attack over it. He hates going outside and I am pushing him to be out for half an hour every day to have a break from computer screens. He’s a smart,clever and most of the time, helpful boy although he mostly has to be forced to help when he doesn’t want to
Matthew (9/12)is the typical 10 year old boy and loves to be muddy, his favourite sport is basketball and would love to see a real match one day and join a team. He hates any type of girly thing and refuses to even look at gymnastics-he hates it with a passion! He loves green and his favourite food is pizza,if he could he would eat pizza every day. Matthew is a kind,boisterous,funny boy and he doesn’t like getting fussed over like a baby! Although he seems confident he has trouble making friends and gets quite upset over it. He needs a lot love and encouragement and support. He’d like someone else to play with also
Alisha is a 9 year old (20/04) and hates to be the centre of attention, she loves to read and build Lego, she doesn’t really like to be outside but if she does go outside she’ll most likely be reading out in the sun. She’s quite shy in making new friends but when she does start to make friends, she makes them quite easily as she’s kind,friendly and helpful and she listens and tries to help everyone if they have a problem. She works very hard in school work and wants to do very well and she knows that she has a long way to go to get the job she wants; a teacher, this doesn’t seem to discourage her though. She also loves Musicals; her favourite being Matilda. She’d love a family to be with and to go to see musicals with.
Bella is a boisterous 7 year old (29/09) and loves to play football although she love to play with Barbie’s, it’s one of her favourite things. Bella hates the colour pink,she prefers purple or coral. She loves being the centre of attention and loves to be a leader. She always wants to do things that children older than her would do, for example she’d love to be in charge of everyone when the adult has to do something. Although she seems quite confident she gets scared when going to meet new people. She’s quite smart and can pick things up quite quickly, she loves Science and Maths but hates English. She quite enjoys painting and would love to become an artist. She’s friendly but doesn’t really help unless you tell her to
Ryan is a 7 year old (05/01) and is very gentle and kind. He hates it when anyone shouts. He’s very sensitive and when he’s tired he can become a little bit whiny. He loves to be looked after and he loves to chase a football around, he doesn’t mind playing on his own and depending on his mood he can become independent if he’s encouraged. He has a bit of a stutter and is genuinely shy around new children and will need a bit of encouragement to make some new friends. He loves to be read stories. He can’t go to sleep without Bo Bo, his monkey teddy. If you don’t let him have it at bedtime he will not go to sleep and will cry as it’s his comfort. Often if he’s in a situation he’s not quite comfortable with, he’ll suck his thumb.
Chloe is a quite,funny,kind and helpful 7 year old (23/04). She normally keeps herself to herself and is always trying her best at everything even though she finds it tough because of her dyslexia. She likes to read a short chapter out of a book each nice and is working towards reading longer chapter books. She loves to help out with younger children like Willow and Elena but they normally play together and follow instructions well so don’t need help. She really wants to be a teacher but has low confidence in that because of her dyslexia. She has a passion for colouring and loves Sylvanian families and usually spends her pocket money on that.
Sophia is a lovable 4 year old (16/11). She loves Disney, in fact she’s obsessed. She loves all the Disney princesses and loves to play with them everyday. She also loves Barbie and Sylvanian families. She is the most girly girl you’ll probably ever meet. She loves pink and purple and loves to paint and dance and sing. She tries very hard to get better at reading because she loves stories. She quite easily pleased and is easily entertained. She loves to play with anyone whether that’s a sibling or a grown up. She loving,kind friendly and is always willing to help. She has quite a good sense of humour and is mostly trying to make everyone laugh and happy, she doesn’t like anyone to be sad and if they are and she can’t make them happy that has a bad impact on her. She’d love someone to play with.
