How You Can Help
Michael would benefit from a large family that has many support systems to assist with Michael needs and/or appointments. Michael would like his adoptive family to enjoy playing in the park as much as he does. He would enjoy a family that likes to read books and go to the zoo together. The adoptive family should have advocacy skills to be able to advocate for Michael’s specific needs in school and outside resources. Adoptive family should also be knowledgeable or be willing to learn about developmental delays and medical diagnosis or Microcephaly. Adoptive family should be willing to engage in developmental therapies and implement strategies in the home. Michael will need patience and understanding as he transitions into his new placement. Ideally, the adoptive family would be open to maintaining contact with Michael’s’ current foster family, as they would like to be a part of his life in some capacity moving forward.
