Name, age: Temo, 10.

Background: Temo enjoys watching movies, playing video games and reading fantasy books. He plays basketball and baseball; he also bowls most Saturdays.

Temo was raised by his grandmother, who died two years ago. Her death left him dealing with grief and feelings of abandonment.

In the fifth grade, he is working at grade level academically.

Temo benefits from counseling and takes medication to deal with attention difficulties. He would like to maintain contact with birth siblings.

Needed: A couple who can provide structure and clear consequences. Temo needs to be an only child or the youngest of much older children.
