We were able to meet with sweet, 10 year old, Archie again during our visit in the fall. Archie has been living in the same foster family since he was an infant, and it’s clear he has a good relationship with his foster mother. She told us that he is a polite, considerate, gentle boy who helps to care for the younger foster brother in the home.
Archie enjoys playing with Legos, reading – especially comic books, and watching TV or movies. He’s really into the Lego Movie! He is currently in the 4th grade and works really hard at school. His teachers report that he is motivated to learn and even won an award for his good grades! When I asked him his favorite subject at school, he told me that he likes computer class because he gets to play games. When I asked his favorite color, he answ
ered “Red!” in English!
Archie has some weakness on the right side of his body. He is able to walk and run, and attends Occupational Therapy twice a week. He also has cortical dysplasia, but does not have epileptic seizures. Archie’s foster mother and social workers have spoken with him about being adopted. While he will be sad, and a little nervous, to leave his foster family, he understands that he won’t be able to stay with them forever and that having a forever family will be best.
