Grady is a sweet boy with a great sense of humor who describes himself as very smart and outgoing. Like many other 14-year-old boys, Grady loves playing video games, watching movies, reading graphic novels and anime.  He recently dug into the 90's catalog of movies and discovered Forest Gump, which he enjoyed very much.  He is currently learning about friendship and belonging by reading the book, The Outsiders.

Grady has stated that he would like to become an EMT when he is older. He likes the idea of being able to help people in need. Grady loves to receive praise and positive attention, and, in turn, is quick to praise others.  Grady can't wait to get a job in the next couple of years so he can earn his own money and spend it. 

Grady tells us that he genuinely enjoys school and his classes very much, especially history and the sciences.  He loves to learn new things in school.  Socially, Grady does well with building and maintaining positive relationships with his peers and teacher at school. 

Grady will do best in a two-parent household either as an only child or the youngest in the family. Grady will fit well into a home that is less active or one that can encourage him to be more active. A family for Grady will need to be supportive of his relationship with his birth mother and brother.
