About Edward (EJ)
Edward (EJ) #7418
Edward is a 12-year-old African American boy with a welcoming smile that warms everyone's heart. Edward has a warm, caring, and endearing personality that allows those around him to become attached rather quickly.
Edward would love to get know a family over his favorite snacks, pizza and ice cream. He enjoys playing basketball, kickball, and baseball. Though, his absolute favorite activity is playing board games, and he will sit for hours with anybody willing to play his favorite game - “Trouble.”
Edward has been through a lot in his life. He has suffered through many tragic and lonely moments, but has shown resiliency and has come out of the trauma with a very loving and caring demeanor. Edward becomes anxious in new environments, but he has made tremendous progress and is now attending day school. He is passing his classes and enjoys going to school. School is important to Edward and he dreams about becoming a Police Officer when he gets older. Edward’s therapist is thrilled with all of the progress he has made in addressing his past trauma and anxiety. Edward stutters and needs someone with patience and who is willing to help him become more confident with his speech.
Edward is looking for a family who will allow him to continue contact with a former foster parent who has adopted his sibling, as well as his biological father. He is looking for a family to love and care for him like one of their own. Edward loves dogs and would love a family with a pet and perhaps an older sibling. Edward still has a ways to go, but would be a great addition to anyone's family with the right dynamics and loving environment.
