Austin is a very chatty 10-year-old who loves adult attention. He can be compulsive about finishing something beginning to end and gets frustrated when he can't do this or be in charge of play or interaction. Austin enjoys reading, drawing, taking selfies, watching movies, going to the park and showing someone how to do something. He also loves animals. Austin needs a patient, loving, calm and understanding family. He really just wants a forever home with love, respect and patience. Following adoption, Austin would need to maintain contact with his paternal grandmother, with whom he is very close.
