Hi! My name is Tyler. I like playing basketball and reading mystery stories.
Tyler is 15, an engaging and likable youth who likes being active outside. Basketball is his favorite sport, but he also likes playing video games and reading mystery stories.
Polite and articulate, and desirous of being helpful to the country, Tyler has expressed interest in the US Army.
Tyler has worked hard in his specialized classroom at school to learn how to manage his behaviors. He has used his resilient attitude to take advantage of coping strategies and shows a genuine desire to always improve. He is meeting with success in these supportive environments. He earns average grades and counts science and reading as his favorite subjects.
Tyler, who is of Hispanic and Caucasian descent, would do best in a two-parent home or in a strong single-parent home where he can be active consistently. He would do best without other children, or with children significantly older than he. He needs a family who can support him when he has behavioral issues, particularly around times of transition or stress. Tyler also wants a family who will help him maintain contact with his birth mother and his older brother.
The ideal family would understand that it will take some time for Tyler to build a relationship with them. He hopes to find a family that is good to him, gives him his own bedroom, and will listen to him.
Have a ball at next week’s adoption event
Come to Springfield next Sunday afternoon for an adoption event at Springfield Boys and Girls Club.
From 1-3:30 p.m., Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange invites you to join in a Wiffle Ball Tournament with waiting children ages 10 and older. Come have a ball in a friendly and low-key environment. The club at 481 Carew St., Springfield, is the perfect place to interact with youths who are waiting for adoptive homes and to network with social workers. There will be a postgame barbecue.
To learn more about Tyler, or to RSVP for this event, call MARE at 617-542-3678 or visit www.mareinc.org.
