Gabriel, age 15, is a talkative and animated teen with a great smile. He is not shy when meeting new people and has a very charming demeanor with a little bit of sass.
He shows leadership skills and is a good role model to his peers. He’s eager to find ways to earn money and showcase his responsibility—he is always happy to pick up a chore like mowing the lawn or helping out around the neighborhood.
Gabe is also very talented. When talking about his love of sports, his child-specific recruiter repeated, “He’s really good at basketball.” He also enjoys learning and has strong academic skills. And, to top it off, he has memorized all of the words to Bruno Mars’ “24K.” On the way to McDonald’s to get Gabe’s favorite treat—a strawberry shake with a cherry on top—he and his child-specific recruiter will turn the music way up and sing along.
Gabe is a very family-oriented teen. He has a strong connection with his foster parent and her son. He would thrive in a family that can provide lots of positive attention, patience and consistency. He does best when he is give structure, routine and strong boundaries. It would be beneficial if Gabriel was the youngest child in the home. Families throughout the United States may be eligible.
