He enjoys being on social media, listening to Christian or rap music, and watching horror movies.
Jose is very bright and has tremendous academic potential. He is in 11th grade. Jose is usually more interested in the social aspects of school, rather than his schoolwork. His teachers always report that his poor grades do not reflect what he is capable of. Jose has a 504 plan to help him succeed academically.
Because of past traumas and losses, it will take time for Jose to learn to trust his forever family. He needs a two-parent family that is calm, patient, and even-keeled. Jose wants to be adopted, and he wants an adoptive family to understand that he is different from most young men his age. He would prefer a family within or near North Carolina so that he can see his siblings as much as possible. Jose is especially close with his younger brother and continuing visits with him is very important to Jose. Jose deserves a family who is willing to stick by him and guide him into adulthood.
