Zachary, 11 – CBS Boston

(MARE) – Zachary is a curious young boy of Caucasian origin. He is well-mannered and rather calm, but is still a very curious child and asks questions about how things work. Zachary enjoys playing with Legos, building things and playing video games. He likes to spend time outdoors and be active. Swimming and baseball are among his favorite activities.

Zachary is able to relate to others, especially caregivers, and is described as being sensitive and kind to others. Zachary is a sweet and polite young boy. He has a calm personality, but once he becomes familiar with the people around him, he will ask intriguing questions. Academically, Zachary is on track and in elementary school. He works on social skills in school and did well in his class. Zachary responds well to words of encouragement and praise. He recently expressed that he would like to be an environmental scientist when he grows up.

Legally released for adoption, Zachary would do well in a family in any constellation, with or without older children at home. A family for Zachary should be willing to help him maintain a relationship with his younger sister and biological parents. A home that can provide a structured environment, close supervision and support will allow Zachary to thrive.
