Tyron

OREGON CHILD

Tyron is a sweet boy who easily gets along with others and is quick to make a joke. He enjoys typical childhood hobbies like bike riding, camping, watching movies and playing video games. He is a good companion and enjoys spending time with adults and other children. He enjoys playing basketball, wall ball, swimming and other active sports. He enjoys being busy and needs an active schedule to keep him happy.

Tyron is in good health and needs only the regular medical, dental and eye checkups.

Tyron is in a regular classroom where he receives extra attention to keep him on task and follow the rules. He has a tendency to get caught up in negative interactions with peers and can test authority figures. He will need an advocate to help him succeed in the school setting to complete homework and engage in positive peer interactions.

It is very important that Tyron have contact with his brother. He visits his brother at least once a month and on occasion will call him as well. This is an important relationship as Tyron is not able to have contact for assorted reasons with the rest of his birth family.

Tyron has been in the same placement with his foster provider since 2010 and would like to continue to have contact if possible once he is moved. He enjoys going camping in the summer with the foster family.

Tyron is easily distractible and gets frustrated if he has to stay on one activity or topic for too long. He needs structure and play to be incorporated into his daily schedule. Tyron can be challenging to authority. This can look like not following directions or even back talk when he is upset. Tyron will need assistance with his relationship with any younger or more vulnerable children in the home because he previously was an only child in the home and tends to have parenting behaviors. He has grown and matured since his time in care and has made progress in regards to his values and relationships with others.

Tyron has made progress in therapy and has had a long term relationship with his therapist. The therapist would be helpful in planning a transition into an adoptive placement. Tyron also has had a relationship with a Big Brother for some time and it would be beneficial to continue this relationship in the adoptive home.

Tyron needs a family that understands the attachment needs of a child who has been in the foster care system transitioning into an adoptive placement. The family should have an understanding about children who have a trauma background and be educated regarding how this may affect his relationships with others. His adoptive family should consider his cultural needs as well as be active in the community. They would need to be open to contact with his brother and, if appropriate, consider openness with extended family members as well. He will benefit from a family that will advocate for his needs in the school system and be open to participating in family therapy if needed.

Tyron is interested in an active family that he can share new memories with. He would like a family that understands his needs to continue ties with his birth family and work with him on developing a positive future plan.
