HI! My name is Darren.

"I love to go to the park!"

Darren is a friendly, funny and kind six-year-old boy of Caucasian descent. He likes spending one-on-one time with adults and loves to give “thumbs up” and “high fives.” Darren has a lot of energy and enjoys being active. He prefers to be outside with neighbors or in the park, rather than playing indoors. He also enjoys watching movies and drawing when he has “down time.”

Despite experiencing many losses in his life, Darren has shown the capacity to connect with caregivers and has formed a strong bond with his foster mother. He is working hard in his foster home and in therapy to manage his anxiety and behaviors. Darren is in the second grade and his classroom teacher reports that he gets along well with his peers. He is supported at school by an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for social and emotional needs.

An ideal family for Darren will be one that can provide him with security, guidance, consistency, and structure. His social worker believes that he will do well in a two-parent household or in a household with a single parent who has supports. Darren will do best in a household with no other children or with children who are older than him. A family should also be open to maintaining contact with Darren’s two biological sisters.
