John likes building things with Legos, watching YouTube and playing with Nerf guns. He enjoys everything outside, especially playing basketball. John said if he could travel anywhere he would go to Hawaii. John is on the autism spectrum and says he really wants to be adopted by a family who can understand him and meet his needs.
