Michael from Pennsylvania
Michael is an active, athletic young man with a great smile. He loves all sports ? almost. He likes every sport except soccer (but you might be able to convince him to play). His favorite teams are the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Orioles, and the Golden State Warriors. As you may have guessed from his favorite teams, his favorite sports are, in order: football, baseball, and basketball. While he loves to watch his favorite teams, he likes to play sports and be outside even more. He'd love to have family members who would throw a football and shoot hoops with him. In addition to sports, Michael likes adventure! He likes to swim, go to water parks, and amusement parks where he especially likes roller coasters. He likes going to the beach, lounging in the sand. He likes to watch scary movies and super hero movies, though you can find him listening to music more often. In addition to all these activities, he also likes to be creative and enjoys drawing. He likes staying busy. He's a mover and a shaker who prefers to create relationships with people through shared experiences. He's doing great in his academic program and enjoys having a ?helper? role in the classroom and at home. Due to his interest in cooking, he's currently helping to create meals! Michael has shared that living in a family is something that makes him feel nervous, so he needs a family who will allow him to build a relationship at his own pace. He's currently connected to his biological sister and would like to maintain this relationship. Parental rights have been terminated for Michael.
