Meet Mickee

We're excited to highlight some of Mickee's story through our In-Depth Profiles, an NWAE project that engages youth to share directly to potential adoptive families. Learn more about In-Depth Profiles™.

Loves: The Holidays and decorations
Always up for: A round of karaoke
Known for: His laughter and happiness
Looking for: An adoptive family he can call his own

A fun kid with a dynamite smile and a great laugh, Mickee loves doling out hugs to his loved ones. Always up for a fun activity, one of Mickee’s favorite things to do is dance! Mickee loves learning and recreating the moves on the video game "Just Dance" while he sings along to the songs.

Mickee is a people person and enjoys sharing his toys and books with friends. He also loves curling up on the couch to watch cartoons. Getting outside to play is something Mickee really enjoys as well!

The holidays are one of Mickee's favorite times of year. Preparing for Christmas is exciting for Mickee, he loves helping out with Christmas decorations, holiday baking, and trips to see Santa. He also enjoys playing dress up and gets excited to show off his costumes on Halloween. This year for Halloween Mickee was excited to dress up like a Ninja Turtle.

Mickee does best when he has highly structured, consistent environments at home and at school. Working alongside teachers who give him the right amount of support has been really beneficial for him and his vocabulary has grown in strides recently. Mickee has also been doing well with a toolbox of strategies he can rely on during particularly tough days.

An experienced adoptive family who can provide Mickee with lots of support, encouragement, and supervision will be the best fit for him. The ideal adoptive family will have lots of specialized experience in parenting and will have ample connections to local community resources.

Everyone on Mickee's team hopes he finds the perfect family he can call his own. If you can see Mickee in your family, please reach out to us. We’re excited to find him the adoptive family he deserves!

Tarek, Mickee's caregiver, shares some of his favorite things about Mickee and why everyone who knows Mickee, loves him.
