Eli's Story

Like other six-year-old boys, Eli likes basketball and toy cars. He also has had issues with “temper tantrums and big explosions,” so much so that his parents, Jodi and Steve, had to hold him to calm him down.

“We adopted Eli from Ethiopia when he was 10 months old, and we aren’t sure what he went through before the adoption,” Jodi said. Fraser Permanency & Adoptive Family Support has helped Eli work through his behavioral issues.

“There is always a possibility of mental health issues, whether a child is adopted or biological. Fraser therapists were a great resource, and we will go back if we need them.”
