Tim* is a 10-year-old proud Aboriginal boy from Gamilaroi country. Unlike many kids his age, Tim prefers to be outside playing rather than being inside on and iPad.
“SpongeBob SquarePants is my favourite TV show, but when it comes to music Kid Laroi is what I listen to because we are from the same mob.”
When he is not outside, Tim likes to unwind with a Harry Potter book or spend time drawing and colouring in. There are a couple of things Tim doesn’t like including cleaning his room, or loud talking in restaurants.
“Timmy is a very affectionate little fella, he has such a big heart and cares deeply about others. Recently he organised to hold a lemonade stand with his friends to raise money for people experiencing homelessness,” says Tim’s current carer.
Sadly, Tim can’t stay with his current carers, so we are looking for his forever home.
While Tim is very chatty and often can talk non-stop, he also has some really big feelings that he has trouble expressing. He uses a feelings chart to help name his emotions and sometimes he might yell so sometimes he needs a reminder to use his inside voice.
