Bobby and his siblings came to us after removal from his birth family. Being the oldest, he was extremely angry and frustrated by foster parents who tried parenting him and his siblings.Over time, he came to allow his foster parents to take over parenting and he began to learn to play and enjoy being a little boy.He slowly made progress at school overcoming the obstacles of being behind his peers. Although, initially he had many problems at school, he overcame them and became a good student for which he was very proud.Making all As was something he had never done and did not think was possible, but it happened!
