Meet Noah

Noah is excited to share some of his story through our In-Depth Profiles, a NWAE project that empowers teens to speak directly to potential adoptive families. Learn more about In-Depth Profiles™.

Loves: Being outdoors
Can teach you about: Rare animals
Favorite rare animal: Axolotl
Wants to find: An adoptive family

Adoptive families who enjoy the outdoors, sports, and athleticism may be interested in getting to know a bit more about Noah, who is a natural athlete. He’s extremely active, enjoys playing with other kids, and is a soccer superstar. Any and everything outdoors is appealing to Noah. When he isn’t kicking field goals or dreaming of his next hiking or fishing trip, Noah is likely playing video games or board games!

An intelligent kid, Noah can tell you anything you want to know about some of the rarest, strangest animals out there! Noah loves learning about new animals and finding out interesting facts that he can share with everyone! Noah helps care for a pet ferret in his current foster home, and really appreciates the chance to take on this responsibility.

Currently in the 8th grade, Noah continues to do well. One-on-one attention from his teachers and mentors is one of the best ways for Noah to be successful in school. An adoptive family who can help guide and motivate Noah as he continues to navigate his school years will be really beneficial for him. Noah is really into reading, and will pick up just about any book, although his favorite genres are fiction and nonfiction.

Noah has stated that he may want to be a scientist or zoologist one day. He really likes animals and is interested in learning more about them, potentially a passion he can combine with his future goals.

Dive into a video Noah made in the past showing off his encyclopedic knowledge! It is important to Noah to keep this video up, as he remains steadfast in his love and dedication to all things animals.

Noah has some biological relationships that will be important for him to maintain. An adoptive family who will support those bonds throughout Noah's life will be essential.

Noah would benefit from being the only child in a home, or a in a home with siblings older than him who could be great and supportive role models for him as he progresses on to high school. In the past, Noah has really enjoyed having a paternal presence in the home. His team would love to hear from family configurations that can provide Noah with the stability, attention, and support he deserves. An adoptive family who can help teach Noah how to express himself and work through his feelings will be really great for him. Noah is a great kid who will do best with lots of structure, consistency, and patience. He will make a great addition to the right adoptive family.

If you can see Noah in yours, reach out to us! We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves.

Beyond the Profile: I've had the pleasure of knowing Noah for a little while, and he is one of the brightest kids I know. There's so much knowledge in that head, I'm not sure how he doesn't have a constant headache! Noah is an excellent conversationalist and has no problem sitting down to chat with you about a subject, even if you may know nothing about it! It's because of Noah that I'm aware of the existence of several animals (I'm looking at you, sheltopusik!) that I'd never heard of before. I'm so hopeful that Noah will find a family that will continue to fuel his desire for learning and knowledge and will help him become the next big biologist with a breakthrough discovery.
