Michael is a tall and handsome 12-year-old who loves being the center of attention. At any time Michael can be found with a smile on his face and an eagerness to please. This energetic boy enjoys outings and exploring new things.
His favorite thing to do is play with his action figures and Hot Wheels. Michael is a friendly pre-teen who is shy, as it takes some time for him to warm up to new people. Michael is not a picky eater and also does not hesitate to inform the cook if more seasoning is needed on a dish.
Most of the time he follows rules both at home and school when structure is a priority. Michael prefers spending time alone in his own world where his imagination can run free. Like most kids his age, Michael becomes engulfed by video games and his favorite cartoons.
Michael would benefit most from a family with no children or no older children. The right family for Michael will possess the patience, understanding, structure, time and love needed to help this handsome young boy grow into the enriched young man he aspires to be.
