Woodesky is among the older children in the HOLD Home, he is mature for his age and is doing well in school.  He is a good reader and enjoys learning.  He, like many kids his age, is quite resourceful, using miscellaneous materials and coming up with all kinds of fun games and ideas when he has free time.  His smile is contagious and he gets along well with his brothers and sisters there in the Home.
