15-year-old Allen is bright, articulate and outgoing! A smart young man, Allen has the ability to excel in school at his age level when he applies himself. Adults in Allen’s life describe him as a “positive” person and someone who can work well with others. Some of Allen’s interests have included reading, drawing, playing games, music and computers.
Allen’s potential adoptive family should be patient and have a solid understanding of mental health and behavioral issues in children. Allen may need guidance in recognizing his responsibilities and encouragement from his adoptive family to follow through.
Allen’s DHS adoption worker will consider potential adoptive families from Iowa and all bordering states. It’s important to Allen that he can maintain a relationship with his older brother.
Allen has had a lot of transition in his young life, and his adoptive parents will need to be patient and understanding in helping him transition to a new environment.
Can you be the forever family Allen is waiting for?
