Phineas is described by nannies as an observant child who has positive relationships with peers and caregivers. He enjoys being with his caretakers and knows/understands their individual personalities and is challenging for him when he has a new caregiver. He gives and receives affection with individuals he likes. He participates in the orphanage activities and loves to explore. He can express his feelings if his caregivers encourage it and knows some self-care.

Phineas needs a loving family that can provide a nurturing environment, felt safety, and knowledge regarding older child adoption.

UPDATE 7/21:

Described as tidy, helpful and observant, Phineas is a sensitive boy who needs time to warm up to new people and new situations. His focus is interest-based and he really enjoys exploring, playing, and spending time with his favorite male caregiver (an orphanage volunteer).

This curious boy has been institutionalized since infancy. He would benefit from individualized attention and, as such, would do best as the youngest or only child. He needs a loving family that will provide a safe and nurturing home environment that offers the safety necessary for him to expand to explore his inner world and interests with confidence. His parent(s) should have a warm demeanor and prescribe to the use of positive and connected parenting strategies that propel Phineas to feel empowered.
