BOSTON (MARE) - Harley is a bright, energetic child who does very well in school. He thrives on one-on-one attention. Harley enjoys reading and can often be found relaxing on his own with a good book. Harley gets along well with his siblings and enjoys visits with them.

Creative, artistic, and energetic, Harley has many stuffed animals that he uses for emotional support.  He enjoys playing musical instruments and participating in the school band. Harley has expressed a desire to become a police officer when he is older.   

Legally freed for adoption, Harley would fit in with most any family constellation that would commit to keeping him in touch, both virtually and in-person, with his siblings who live in western MA to whom Harley is very close.
