How You Can Help Dakota
Dakota is a St. Louis Cardinals fan! He played baseball and football in his current high school, and he tries very hard to earn a place on his team. With your encouragement, he will make an all-out effort. He’s not afraid to reach out for support and attention.
Dakota is able to interact appropriately with peers and adults most of the time, especially when adult supports are available. He has a strong ability to form relationships. He needs consistent, caring parenting to help him understand the consequences of his behavior and the importance of exercising self-control and good judgment. Dakota is in a non-relative traditional foster home and has made tremendous progress. He is very anxious to be part of a loving family, with an older sibling if possible and a lot of room to play. A transition to a permanent family will undoubtedly cause him to blossom as an individual. He definitely needs a dad to guide his development as a young man and help him develop a vision for his future. It is also very important that bi-weekly visits with his sister continue.
