Twinkies. That’s all it takes. If you want to get our buddy James talking, all you have to do is slide a Hostess Twinkie in front of him and you’re off and running. Adding some french fries or pizza wouldn’t hurt your cause, either! While breaking the ice with James is fairly simple, really getting to know the young man behind the sugar-induced grin is a little more complicated. James has a well-earned lack of trust in adults, and he has a tough time staying on an even keel when he feels anxious or upset. He can get angry pretty quickly and he doesn’t always make the best decisions when he gets in these moods. This is a direct result of his upbringing and the lessons he learned as a young child, which means that these behaviors can be improved with new lessons, right? Absolutely, and James is putting in the work every day to re-learn how to respond appropriately when the world throws him a curveball, but he needs your help to keep going. He needs a patient, positive, and consistent two-parent home where he has the space to keep making great progress along with the occasional stumble and bad day. James is no different from any of us in that respect – we all need to know that we have people in our corner to love us and support us, through thick and thin. If you’d like to learn more about being in James’ corner, just let us know.
