LEO PHAM: (7, Male) he’s a sensitive soul with the emotional intelligence of someone much older. He loves talking about his feelings and he’s very in tune with those around him. Most kids are known to have a temper tantrum from time to time… or all the time, but Leo goes with the flow. He can read a room and the situation better than most adults. He’ll walk in, tell it like it is (in the most endearing and innocent way possible), and then go back to his action figures without batting an eye. Andrew, Camille, and Khia often refer to him as their own “Baby Yoda.” A Baby Yoda who just happens to be scared of monsters under the bed and the things that go bump in the night. He is still seven after all. His interests include superheroes, drawing, and surprisingly the practice of mixed martial arts… but he just likes learning the moves and the spiritual lessons, not the actual sparring. He’s a good kid. LEAD
