A foster home is being sought for Jim, 3, a rambunctious child who is full of energy and very gentle with younger children. Jim is presently in an emergency foster home and is in need of a permanent home. He has experienced much instability in his short life and has made remarkable progress in adjusting to the rules and routine in his present home.
Jim is described as a sociable, outgoing, and curious child who interacts well with his peers. He can be stubborn, but responds well to structure and consistency. He has a history of under-stimulation, which has resulted in speech delays and a referral has been sent for speech therapy.
Jim’s parent is unable to take care of him. He needs a family who can make a long-term commitment, as well as being open to structured visits from his mother. The ideal foster family would be a two-parent Black family.
For more information about Jim, please call Batshaw Youth and Family Centres at 514-932-7161, local 1139.
