Leighton is a 12-year-old boy from Texas who is hoping to be adopted.
Leighton is a very quiet child who likes to play with Star Wars toys. He also loves superheroes, like Spiderman. He likes baseball and loves the Rangers! He also likes to build things with Legos. He is a very easy going child who loves to smile, talk, and laugh a lot. He is described as a "jokester" who loves to tease. Leighton is a very active child and he enjoys playing outside. He learns at a slower rate than other children his age, but he is a very determined child who always gives 100% to what he is doing and will not quit until he finishes. He loves to watch movies and to read. He really enjoys looking at magazines. Visit me at the Heart Gallery of Northwest Texas.
The family who will best meet Leighton's needs will have experience working with children who learn at a slower rate. Leighton needs a patient, loving family who will teach him do be more independent. His family will be accepting and respectful of him while also setting boundaries.
