Michael would do best in a two-parent home, or with a resilient and vigilant single parent, that could provide him with structure and calm limits while also being able to offer him warmth and affection. Michael is legally freed for adoption and would like a family with whom he could “share a lot of laughs” with and who would also protect him. He also needs to maintain contact and regular visitation with his younger sister who was adopted by another family in Massachusetts.
