Meet Tirahji– Young teen hopes to light up family’s life

Posted

To find Tirahji, just listen for the sound of laughter. The 12-year-old has a knack – and passion – for making others laugh.

When he’s not cracking jokes, you can find him outside playing sports. His two favorites are currently football and basketball, but also enjoys swimming. Really anything to get Tirahji out of the house and burning energy is alright by him.

During the hot summer months, you can find Tirahji inside playing board games, drawing, or listening to music and dancing. But be careful if you challenge him to a dance battle! Tirahji is known to bust a move or two that is sure to put his competition to shame.

Helpful, kind, and shy at times, Tirahji is ready to become a permanent member of someone’s family. His child specific adoption recruiter says he would do best as the oldest or only child in the home. He does not particularly enjoy school (except for recess of course) and needs a family that is patient and consistent when it comes to setting boundaries and facing consequences.

For more information on children in foster care eligible for adoption, call Aid to Adoption of Special Kids at 602.930.4900, or visit www.aask-az.org.

Editor's note: Ms. Gaieck is a copywriter at AASK - Aid to Adoption of Special Kids. She will be submitting articles regularly to the Daily Independent at YourValley.net in hopes to find children forever families.
