Jaykoreyan’s ideal family will be active in their local and Christian communities. His family will be patient and willing to provide him with individual care to meet his needs. The family will be active and willing to participate in sports, video games, and outdoor activities with him.

The ideal family for Jakaylan and Jakoreyan will be patient and able to maintain structure, boundaries, and appropriate expectations. The boys respond best when they know what to expect and when to expect it. They need to be prepared when changes are made to schedules or within the family dynamic. Ideally they will be the youngest children in the home, as they will require a great amount of attention. The boys will benefit from a positive male role model as they grow older. The family will be open to having pets or already have pets. A family with an active lifestyle that includes outdoor activities, such as playing sports, camping, hiking, and fishing will be ideal. However, they also need to have less active days that include being home and playing video and board games, as well as building Lego sets. They will benefit most from a balanced lifestyle of various types of activities.
