Michael (17) can be a very outgoing, talkative teen. He loves interacting/attention from others and once he gets to know someone, will converse as long as he is able to! He can be sarcastic at times and has a great sense of humor. He is bright, creative, inquisitive and loves to ask questions. Michael likes to have fun, try new things, but also enjoys hanging at home and relaxing. Some of Michael’s hobbies include tinkering/taking things apart and putting them back together, playing on the computer or watching videos/playing video games, being out- doors, ﬁshing, being on the water and being creative!
The right family for Michael will be patient and kind, and give Michael opportunities to express himself and talk through tough issues. A family that offers good structure and guidance as he navigates high school and beyond would be great for helping Michael reach his full potential! Michael is open to any family composition, and background. Although, he would prefer to be youngest or only kid in the home. Michael doesn’t mind if families are religious, he just hopes to never be required to be religious himself. The right family for Michael will be social and funny, and can expect exciting conversation and humor every time he is around!
