The outgoing, happy and energetic Alex is always trying to keep up with the children around him, and he does a great job! He has many hobbies and interests, some of which include playing with his beloved toy cars, putting together puzzles, reading, and playing on his iPad. Alex is a big fan of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, favors the color blue, and loves dining on Goldfish crackers, chicken nuggets, and French fries. He is very creative and enjoys working on art projects. Alex adores attention and is extremely bonded to the adults in his life. He is almost always smiling and loves giving hugs. Alex continues to thrive academically and physically in his kindergarten year. His teachers report that they are astounded at how quickly he catches onto things and revel at his incredible memory. He currently benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan), physical, speech, and occupational therapies. Alex will not live independently as an adult, but he can have an amazing life! A two-parent family in which Alex can be the only child is preferred; however, all family types will be considered. Alex would benefit from maintaining contact with his current foster parent and sibling. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. This is a LEGAL RISK ADOPTIVE PLACEMENT. For Missouri children, both homestudied and non-homestudied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.
