Brandon is an active, caring, and creative 8-year-old who loves to play outdoors.

His favorite indoor activity is drawing, and he delights in using markers for his artwork. Brandon also enjoys watching cartoons and riding horses. He thinks he would like to have a horse some day.

In school, Brandon receives special-education services and benefits from small class size and individual attention. He gets along well with his classmates and teachers, who say he is a pleasure to have in the classroom. He is making progress in learning about appropriate boundaries with adults and peers.

Despite his young age, Brandon already is thinking about his future. He would like to be a fireman when he grows up. For now, however, he has a more immediate goal: to have a forever family.

He has experienced much trauma in the past and needs a patient, loving family that will take the time to get to know him so he can feel safe and secure. The best family for him will provide a structured environment and participate in his therapeutic services.

Brandon should be the youngest or only child in the home. He is eligible for financial subsidy.

Brandon and other children are available for adoption. For information, contact Crystal Allen at the National Adoption Center.
