He is super social and likes to meet new people, and when he’s around the people that he loves – whether its family or members of his support team – he absolutely lights up. Michael really wants to be successful and works super hard to be a positive member of his family – something that he is eager to find. Michael really wants to be adopted by the right family.
Michael is passionate about many different things in his life, all that bring him joy and happiness. He loves his three wheeler, he’s a big fan of Pokémon, he loves his stuffed animals, and he has recently gotten into playing with Nerf toys. Michael is also always up for a movie night – a potential future activity for his adoptive family!
Getting outside is always invigorating for Michael. He loves to ride his three-wheeler up and down the street and really enjoys swimming. He’s taken swim lessons in the past and would definitely be up for revisiting that aspect of his life. Michael also likes to camp and just generally spend time outdoors. He also likes dogs a lot. An adoptive family who has a pet or would be willing to get one would be great!
Currently in the 4th grade, Michael is doing awesome in school. He’s doing amazing making new friends and his teachers all say he is quite responsible with his online work. He’s very eager to learn and especially loves riding the school bus! Michael does well when he can build trust with his teachers and mentors.
