David presents as quiet and shy. He is guarded and slow to warm in the company of strangers, and will only engage in limited conversation at first. David is very active and athletic, and enjoys a number of sports. When he is not involved in a sport-related activity, David enjoys video games. Once you get to know David, he can be very engaging and a pleasure to be around. David has an older brother that he has a very strong bond with, and it is important that this relationship is maintained.

What You Can Do for David
You can provide a supportive, family-oriented home environment for David. You can set high expectations for him, especially when it comes to academics. You can also encourage him to maintain his relationship with his brother, including regular visits. The ideal family would consist of two parents, or a single father, who enjoy family trips, vacations, church outings and other group activities. David is open to joining any type of family, as long as he is allowed to maintain his relationships with his biological family members.
An Illinois family is preferred.
