Our buddy Nickolas is such a fun kid! He is super friendly and loving, and he loves giving and receiving hugs. When he was younger, he never received the kind of attention he needed and deserved. As a result, he’s a little behind his peers developmentally and he learned some bad habits to try to get the attention he needed. He can throw a tantrum with the best of them, but it comes from a place of need, not just because he’s angry or upset. He just needs to feel valued, wanted, and seen. Since coming into foster care, we’ve already seen huge improvements in his development. And Nickolas has never lost the loving, sweet disposition he naturally has. And he loves to learn through playing! Child development tells us that playing is one of the best ways for young children to learn important lessons about themselves and the world around them, and Nickolas is a sponge! He enjoys playing outside, riding his bike, and just exploring his environment. He’s also a big fan of building things with blocks, solving puzzles, and playing with trains. Nickolas will need a loving, patient family that can give him that extra attention he needs so he can catch up with his peers. He just needs that consistent support and guidance from you…and don’t forget those hugs!
