Ryan, Age 9
This hard-working second grader has a strong drive to succeed and would do best in a home where he can be the only child. The parent (s) for Ryan must have a secure attachment, previous parenting experience, knowledge about attachment and trauma, confidence, a large support system and the space and time in their life to prioritize his needs. Ryan will be matched with a family who is committed to keeping structure in his life with after school activities as well as with the services he will need to continue receiving.
His caseworker will consider all family types. He will need to maintain contact with his siblings and grandmother following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. Colorado families are preferred.
