Gauge strives to be better

Posted

Few people are as self-aware as Gauge, a boy barely into high school who knows his strengths and knows where he needs to improve to reach his goals.

“Gauge is always trying to do better,” says Kayla, a child specific adoption recruiter with Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK). “He knows what he wants and he will advocate for himself.”

Gauge, 14, likes to build things. He recently took a welding class, followed by a class in robotics where he built drones. He would like to be a mechanic or an architect when he grows up.

Gauge’s improving grades reflect a growing drive to do better.

“Gauge would do well in any family setting,” says Kayla. “He will do best with a structured and consistent routine. He will also need a strong male figure, but one who does not come off too stern.”

Gauge would get along well with other children already in the home.

The teen is the oldest of three brothers and while placing them all in the same adoptive home isn’t part of the care plan, it is important that the boys are able to continue their relationship. They now visit twice a month.

For more information on children eligible for adoption, call Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK) at 602-930-4900, or visit www.aask-az.org.

Editor's note: Mr. Williams  was a family resource development specialist  at
AASK - Aid to Adoption of Special Kids. AASK will be submitting articles regularly to the Daily Independent at YourValley.net in hopes to find children forever families.
