Hunter is a very happy and curious little boy who has light brown hair, blue eyes, and is often seen with a smile on his face. Hunter has been diagnosed on the autistic spectrum and receives support in school. He is nonverbal, but will repeat one syllable words. If Hunter needs something, he will take your hand and lead you to what he wants. He understands rules, limitations, and follows directions. Hunter’s foster mother describes him as intelligent, loving, caring, and very gentle. She says he enjoys eating and will try all different foods. Hunter enjoys going outside and running around in the grass. He also likes watching television – his favorite movie is Disney’s “Cars.” Although he does not initiate play with others, he will play alongside them as well as watching others play video games.

Hunter would do well in a forever home with one or two parents who can give him unconditional love and provide structure, support, and stability. He needs a family who understands the challenges of autism spectrum disorder and who has the time and patience to work with him.

Presently, Hunter is in a different foster home than his two sisters. The children share a very close bond it would be beneficial for them to maintain a connection.

Hunter is legally free for adoption.
Families must have an approved Family Profile (home study) to adopt a child. Only those families with approved profiles will be considered by the child’s caseworker in the county children and youth agency with custody of the child.
The information is given by PAE based solely on the statement of the family that they are approved to adopt. Families in Pennsylvania without an approved Family Profile are directed to contact 1-800-585-SWAN1-800-585-SWAN to pursue an agency in their geographic area. Families living outside of Pennsylvania are encouraged to work with an agency in their state to prepare the profile.
