BOSOTN (MARE) - Kealan is a curious boy of Caucasian descent who loves to smile when he is happy. Kealan loves music and lights up when he hears his favorite songs!

Kealan is on the Autism spectrum and is currently in preschool. Kealan knows a handful of words and signs he uses to engage others. He knows how to get your attention and enjoys attending school.  He is a sweetie!

Legally freed for adoption, Kealan's social worker is looking to place him with a family that is able to meet his needs and help him thrive. A family would need to be able to keep up with Kealan's medical and developmental appointments and help advocate for him at school.
