As November is National Adoption Month, we here at the Herald Post have partnered with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to help raise the profile for kids in foster care whose permanency goal is adoption.
This is the second in a series of stories profiling a child looking for their Forever Family.
Sergio has a lot of personality, enjoys talking and being with people. He says when he grows up, he wants to “help people” and “rescue dogs.”
His favorite things are spending time on the playground, swimming, coloring, watching cartoons, riding his bike, and “spinning” coins. He also likes making beaded bracelets. Sergio has enjoyed participating in therapeutic horsemanship classes.
Sergio is a child with special needs who has been diagnosed with autism, but his loving, affectionate behavior shines through. When doing FaceTime calls with his CPS worker, he always ends the calls by blowing kisses.
