Eddie is a kind, respectful and well-mannered teen who speaks Spanish and is working hard on mastering English. He enjoys reading, playing video games, and watching documentaries. Eddie loves to be outdoors and stay active and is looking forward to playing football, baseball and Pickleball on a school or community team once he gets settled into his permanent home. When asked what qualities he possesses that could make him a great fit for a family, he thinks that some things that would be important for prospective families to know about him are that he tries to avoid problems and to be accommodating; that being clean and maintaining a clean personal space is really important to him and that he loves to joke around but prides himself on making sure that it's all in good fun and that he doesn't hurt other people's feelings. This thoughtful young man defines a good life as not necessarily having a lot of material things, but having enough to get his basic needs met and then concentrating on creating a life filled with balance, peace and tranquility.
Eddie loves Panda Express, Chinese food and food from Guatemala. He likes to do some cooking on his own when he has the chance and is good at making tortillas, Sopas, eggs, beans and rice! Eddie enjoys learning new things and has an interest in science, mechanics and in the field of construction. He works hard in school and strives to be an active participant in all aspects of his life. Eddie considers himself a Christian and would like a family who supports his religious beliefs.
Eddie is an overcomer and the very definition of the word resiliency! His ability to go through really difficult circumstances and retain his positive outlook and his empathetic personality is truly amazing. With the love and support of a committed family, he will surely be able to reach all of his future goals! Eddie is hoping for a calm, peaceful family who listen to each other well and who solve their problems with good communication and respect. If you have other children in the home, he will likely do best with other kids around his same age or older and he's open to any kind of parental make-up. Eddie is in need of a guardianship placement. If you think that Eddie could make a wonderful addition to your family, we're looking forward to hearing from you!
