A caring, introspective, natural leader, Michael is the kind of person who brings a ton of positive energy to the room. In fact, when speaking with a recent caregiver, they noted that Michael often has a mission to brighten someone’s mood.
“When someone is having a bad day, Michael will do all he can to change that. Michael has made friends easily; due to the positive energy he carries.”
Michael is a very engaged person who has a ton of hobbies and interests. He’s a big reader who especially seeks out fantastical book series. Among his favorites are Percy Jackson. He loves video games like Minecraft and Fortnite and also enjoys mobile games like Pokémon Go. When it’s nice outside, Michael loves to head outdoors to ride his bike, play on the trampoline, or go on an outing – like fishing!
Currently in the 7th grade, Michael is doing pretty well navigating the world of online learning. He participates in class and is doing his best! An adoptive family who will motivate, encourage, and support Michael in his studies will be a great addition for him. In the future, Michael has expressed an interest in becoming a technical engineer. He has a real knack for taking things apart and putting them back together and would love to make a career out of it. Michael is really interested to start learning how to work on cars and would really benefit from an adoptive family who can help him accomplish that goal. He’s also really interested in woodworking!
“I appreciate Michael’s willingness to talk with me during visits. He is more engaged than a lot of children his age.”
Michael has a really close relationship with his biological brother Christopher. An adoptive family who will support this bond and welcome Michael's brother into their lives is essential.
The ideal family for Michael should be experienced, patient, and ready to meet Michael where he’s at. A big fan of pets (especially dogs!), Michael would be so excited for his adoptive family to be pet people! Ideally, Michael would like to be the only child in a home (and would like his own room) but is really seeking quality time with his future adoptive family. A big game player, Michael is ready to challenge anyone to a night of Uno!
