Nathaniel, 14, wants to be a policeman

The following information is provided by Wednesday’s Child, an organization that helps Idaho foster children find permanent homes.

Nathaniel, 14, is a friendly, kind and engaging young man with a great sense of humor. He says that sometimes people call him “Nathan” but that he prefers his full name. Nathaniel loves the outdoors and describes his ultimate vacation as a trip to Alaska, where he would “do lots of fishing, hunting, and hiking.” According to Nathaniel, if he had his choice of where to live, it would be on a farm because he would love to learn to ride a horse. Full of energy, this active guy also loves sports. Nathaniel is on the football team this season and would like to someday try out for the wrestling, basketball and track teams. When asked about what he would like to be when he grows up, Nathaniel was quick to reply that he one day hopes to be a police officer.

Nathaniel’s team describes the best fit for him in an adoptive family would be two parents who are calm, value routine and have a good balance between flexibility and structure in their home. Nathaniel does best in environments that are predictable to him and would thrive in a setting with parents who are able to be engaged, nurturing and playful. Nathaniel is open to the possibility of a family where he would have same-aged or older siblings. Finding an adoptive family who has an understanding of trauma-informed parenting would be a tremendous benefit to Nathaniel as well. This sweet and deserving boy is excited and ready to be a part of a new family and a bright new future. Could your family be just the one he has been dreaming about?
