Sergio, 13, is looking to become a part of a "calm" family. He is an avid watcher of television game shows, especially ones involving trivia. Sergio considers himself a trivia buff, and says he often conducts research to sharpen his trivia skills.

His counselor describes Sergio as "quirky," but only in the best way. She says that he is a very loyal and loving brother to his three younger siblings, and that he very much wants to remain a part of their lives.

A Lover of Fun

Having fun is very important to Sergio.

"I'm a person who actually likes to have fun instead of having a boring life," says Sergio. "That's the last thing I want. It's actually not even the last thing I want, that's not even what I want at all."

The Ideal Family for Sergio

Legally freed for adoption, Sergio will thrive in a loving family that can provide him with structure and support. He is living with a single mother and two other teen boys. He gets along well with the other boys and is enjoying his time with them. He is helpful around the house and will check in to make sure others are OK. 

Sergio does especially well with infants.

 

An ideal family for Sergio will live in Massachusetts and be willing to help him maintain a relationship with his siblings and birth mother. Sergio is looking for balance within a forever family. He wants to spend quiet time at home and is also eager to have a fun and exciting life.
