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).

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.
