(MARE) – William, who likes to be called Will, is an active boy and loves Hispanic and Caucasian descent. He is outgoing and loves to play with many of his friends. He is very sociable at school and after school. He has a witty sense of humour, reflexes, a good listener, and loves to make people laugh. Will is also very sensitive and caring about the feelings of others. He is described as very helpful to others and very polite. Will enjoys playing video games, building with Legos, working with wood and handicraft activities. He did well at school. He once expressed a desire to work in construction, becoming an architect or a truck driver when he gets older. He really wants to be adopted and is looking forward to the happy day when he will meet his adoptive family.
The will is part of an old soul. He studies well but can use as many motivating measures as possible to keep track of his learning. William has an individual education plan in school to address his social and emotional needs. He can reach out to a school counselor if he feels overwhelmed or needs some extra support. William enjoys outdoor activities like basketball. He enjoys computer games, video games, and activities in a family setting such as family game nights, movie nights, and cooking with his adoptive mother. These are all things that make him feel part of a caring family unit. William gets along well with younger and older children. He has an older sister and brother with whom he maintains an ongoing relationship.
Legally free to adopt, Will would fit well into any family group with or without other children in the home. An out-of-town family will be considered for Will provided that the family can commit to helping him maintain face-to-face visits and virtually contact with his siblings and grandmother, who both live in in Western MA and with whom he is very close.
