Austin is a 16 year old who says his summer highlight has been fishing at the river. Other things that interest Austin are riding his bike around town, helping out at a local carpet store, and anything to do with cars! Austin is specifically fascinated with the Aston Martin DB5 cars (as in the James Bond movies), and also has a liking for Chevy Camaros and Ford Mustangs. Austin was fortune enough to be taken on a joy ride in a Mustang recently which really made his week …or year I should say!
Austin says that he would love to do something with cars when he gets older…that is if he can’t be an MI6 Agent in Britain. You can probably tell by now that he is a huge James Bond fan! Austin says he would love for his Forever Family to have pets, as he has the biggest heart for cats. Austin has a creative imagination and enjoys writing in his journal where he also likes sharing his stories with others. Austin is working on improving with his social skills with peers and has made great strides regulating negative behaviors.
Austin has one wish: "to be adopted by a family that wants me." Austin is a meat and potato kind of guy, but says he will eat pretty much anything.
Austin likes to swim in the pool and go tubing at the lake. He has a love of video games and enjoys playing any racing game on his PlayStation2. Austin also enjoys listening to music and assembling Lego projects.

His foster family says that Austin has become very independent within the last four years and has made great strides in his daily tasks. Austin receives on going therapy services.
It is recommended that these services continue for Austin after adoptive placement and finalization.
If given the choice, Austin would choose to spend time on his own, rather than play with other children or be in the company of others.
