Steven has some mixed feelings regarding adoption which are understandably related to a history that makes it difficult for him to trust others. At times Steven has indicated he would like to have a forever family, but will need a home that is willing to give him the time and consistent structure that will allow Steven to build that trust relationship. Steven is very interested in moving to a foster home that could potentially become an adoptive home. He has indicated he would like to live in the city although he does not want to attend a giant school. At this time he is only willing to consider a female headed household. He is open to having one or two brothers. A smaller family size would likely be ideal for Steven. Steven also would not mind living with a family that has some pets.
Steven does not prefer a lot of change, so a family that has more of a consistent routine would likely be the best fit for Steven’s personality. Steven will need a family that has time to teach him the independent living skills he will need as an adult. Steven has expressed no desire to re-connect with biological family members and is looking for a new start on his own with a family that will be willing to commit to his success.
