HI! My name is Nathaniel.
 I wish I could live in a mansion!
 I’m a great dancer.
 I am brave when it comes to trying new things!

Let me tell you more about myself
Nathaniel is a charming eleven year old boy of African/Jamaican descent. He is described as being very smart for his age and full of energy. Nathaniel is small in stature but is very athletic.  Nathaniel has sparkling eyes and a warm smile.  Nathaniel has an Individualized Education Plan focused primarily on his emotional needs. He is doing very well in school and is academically on target.  He is an engaging conversationalist and will ask for very detailed answers.

Nathaniel does very well given the correct support. Due to past experiences, Nathaniel can put up his guard, but once in a nurturing home, he has been able to thrive and build positive relationships. He is a very likeable kid with a big heart. He loves to play with his toys and play outside.  In his current placement, he responds very positively to a structured reward system.

Nathaniel would do the best in a home that is very nurturing and able to help him succeed in school. It is important that he maintain contact with his maternal grandmother as he has a very positive relationship with her. Not yet legally free for adoption, Nathaniel would do best in a home with or without children.

You can help bring me closer to finding "a place to call HOME" by filling out the MARE Information Request Form. They will be glad to help you get more information about me.
