Meet Zach

Zach is a teen who loves to play outside. He enjoys fishing and sports. Zach is active and inquisitive. He is almost always on the go, with the need to explore and figure out how things work. Zach likes playing board games, making origami, and coloring/drawing. His favorite foods are Mexican dishes, anything spicy and fried seafood. Zach does well in school and is usually ahead of the class as he works hard and finishes his work quickly. Fist bumps and high fives are important to him and help encourage him when he’s feeling down.

Zach appreciates it when people take time to talk to him about his thoughts and feelings, but he says it also feels good when people just sit with him. Zach says, “ When I grow up, I want to be a football player or an Olympic player, but I understand that those are hard to do, so my realistic plan is to be a janitor. I might be clumsy with my growing feet sometimes, but I have really good people skills and so many dreams. I want a caring and loving family. I am working really hard to reach my goals and to be able to have a forever family one day.”
