Age: 16
Gender: Male

Noah is a tall and slender boy with blond hair and blue eyes. He is very bright and has a great sense of humor. Noah talks with a minor speech impediment, but it doesn't get in the way of his joke telling. He is charming when he knows he is being funny.

Noah has great relationships with adults and is able to go to regular school classes.

Noah is extremely imaginative and loves to read and draw. This year Noah built a model home on his own (with some direction from his foster father).

Noah very much wants to be adopted and have a forever family. Noah has even asked if he could be apart of the picking process for my new family.

Noah will do great with a home that offers him a steady schedule and a stable home environment. The forever home that chooses Noah should be a home that likes to laugh and can teach Noah the social skills he will need to be successful in life.
