John is a 11-year-old boy from Florida who is hoping to be adopted.This young man is a big fan of Japanese Anime, particularly Pokemon and Bakugan. In the Pokemon books, readers are thrust into other worldly adventures encountering protagonists and antagonists. John relates to the Pokemon characters who act impetuously when encountering strangers, unknowing if they are friends or foes. Like these characters, John has difficulties with trust and can often misperceive the intentions of others and may overact to peers actions or words. When not reading Pokemon, John enjoys playing Bakugan. In Bakugan, characters battle to defend the universe. Similarly, John has verbal battles to protect himself in an effort to help him feel that he is safe and protected. John's intense reactive personality has ruptured peer relationships. John has been working on being able to discern the meanings behind social interactions and has been learning how to adjust his responses accordingly. His ideal family will be open to continuing to build on John's social skills, provide a structured, supervised environment and be able to commit to a child who will need support and guidance for his lifetime.
