Grant Me Hope: Tyler
Tyler realizes the world doesn’t revolve around him. Instead, Tyler’s understanding is that the world revolves around Pokémon. He loves Pokémon and admires those who share his interest in all things Pokémon, including his close acquaintances. “The fact that they have Pokémon Go made them the coolest people ever,” says one of the people who knows him well. As you might guess from that comment, Tyler is a friendly, silly, funny and playful young man. He enjoys playing video games and board games such as Monopoly, and he likes playing outside, riding his bike and going swimming. “Tyler is a good athlete and enjoys being part of a team,” says an adult close to him. He especially likes football, baseball and basketball. Tyler also enjoys playing with Beyblades and Magic the Gathering card game. Tyler’s favorite foods include peanut butter and jelly, pizza – minus the veggies – steak, pineapple, watermelon and eggs.
One of the people close to him calls Tyler an energetic, social, sweet, athletic and kind boy. You could add adventurous and intelligent, too, because, “Tyler loves trying new things! Tyler is a smart, loving, playful and insightful boy. Tyler is a good friend, and he is often showing care and concern for his peers. He is a good reader and a good student.”
Tyler will need a patient and understanding forever family. His new parent or parents should be experienced and trauma informed. Tyler would do best as the youngest child in his new family. Finally, the family must be open to letting Tyler maintain his sibling relationships.
