What You Can Do for Ethan
Ethan would like to join a family that will love and support him and also have fun with him. He’s hoping to have a family with other little kids because he sometimes gets lonely. Your family should have patience and be able to maintain structure, consistency, and firmness with Ethan. Your family should be trauma-informed and be able to provide Ethan with one-on-one attention. It is very important that your family be involved with the therapeutic process and be hands on when it comes to Ethan’s recommended services and educational and emotional needs. Ethan has a close relationship with his twin sister, and a family that will help him maintain that relationship is strongly preferred.
