Sunday’s Child is Seth, 15

Hi! My name is Seth. I love drawing and carpentry.

Seth is a bright, complex, and charismatic teenager who deserves to have a bright future. At 15, Seth is resilient and optimistic about finding a permanent home where he can feel he belongs. He has a lot to offer in a family setting.

Seth attends a technical school and names math, computer science, science, and art as his favorite subjects. He particularly enjoys drawing and carpentry.

Academically, Seth has done well. He has received services from an Individualized Education Program to address his emotional and behavioral challenges, and may continue to need extra support. In his spare time, Seth says he enjoys typical teen interests: playing video games, listening to music, and watching television. He also enjoys most sports, including baseball and soccer.

Seth would do best in a home with a single mom or two moms in which he could get plenty of attention as an only child or the youngest child without siblings close to his age. Seth would benefit from a patient, understanding family that can provide him with structure, consistency, and clear expectations. An ideal family would be experienced parents who would be invested and committed to seeing Seth reach his full potential.
