Norman is a personable 13-year-old who makes friends easily. A cooperative teenager, he constantly strives to do his best. His efforts are very apparent in school, where he is known as a very smart student with good judgment and logic skills. He has been on the honor roll many times over the years.
Norman concentrates best when he is able to move around a bit, which may account for his love of football. He eagerly welcomes any opportunity to play the game and excels in the positions of nose guard, tight end and running back. When he’s not on the football field, he enjoys swimming, boating and riding his bike with his friends. He is very fond of dogs and cats and would be extremely upset if he saw one injured or abused.
Norman’s traumatic past includes many losses and disappointments and he longs to have a permanent home. This teenager has great potential. However, he cannot achieve it alone. He needs a dedicated, patient family that will provide the structure, security and support that is necessary for him to succeed. With the guidance of a loving and stable family, Norman’s future is boundless. Preferably, the family would have other children, but he should be the youngest. It would be great if the family has a pet. Norman is close to his brother and it is important that they remain in contact. He is eligible for financial subsidy.
