Editor's Note: Window on the Clearwater has joined the Wednesday's Child network to help spread the word about children that are waiting for families to give them the loving care that they need. Each Wednesday we will profile a different child. For more information about Wednesday's Child and how you can be involved check the web site at: http://www.icwrtc.org/wednesdays-child-1.
Auston is an artistic and creative young man who likes to build model cars. He likes to draw - mostly dragons and everyday things like buildings. When Auston is an adult, he would like to be a mechanic and an artist so he can combine both of his talents by building cars and then painting them a certain way! School is going well for Auston, although he requires some extra accommodations- his favorite subject is PE and his favorite sport is basketball. The Golden State Warriors are his favorite team.
Auston reports that he's been ready for a family for a long time and sees himself in a happy, loving family. He is OK with siblings but just wants a family who cares about each member and likes to do fun things and spend time together. He is OK with animals or without. He likes the idea of living somewhere that has the conveniences of a city, but feels like the country…the best of both worlds! In Idaho or out of state is OK with him as well. He doesn't mind the outdoors and outdoor activities, but wouldn't consider himself an outdoors person necessarily.
Auston wants people to know that he is very caring. He has developed good strategies to help him when frustrations occur, and is able to let families know what works best for him. He also wants families to know that (like a lot of teens) he can be very tired in the morning, but he has no trouble sleeping at night! Auston does best when he knows what to expect, and has plenty of time to prepare for even small transitions. He has a very big imagination so a family that can help him to develop that in healthy ways would be good.
Auston is sweet and fun to be with. If you can provide him with structure, love, patience, and the flexibility he needs, he will treat your family with much affection and imagination. If you think you can provide the family setting Auston needs please inquire about him through his profile on http://idahowednesdayschild.org/.
