Nehemiah, 12, is often described as quiet and laid back. Although he can be timid when meeting new people, he warms up when he feels comfortable with them. He can be very energetic when he is around his siblings and in familiar places. Naturally introverted, he is content to observe others around him. Despite his young age, Nehemiah is already thinking about his future. He loves trains and envisions a career as a locomotive engineer when he grows up.

Fascinated by insects and animals, Nehemiah spends many happy hours watching them on the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. He also enjoys watching comedy movies, reading mystery novels and listening to music, especially gospel. Nehemiah’s favorite foods are pizza, hot dogs and popcorn. In school his favorite classes are math and science.

Nehemiah wants very much to be adopted. He is ready to become part of a permanent home. He would thrive with a family that is patient, loving and nurturing and that would provide a structured environment for him. He is very close to his twin sister, Nakiyah and his younger brother, Elijah, 10 and it is important that they remain in contact. Their dream is to be adopted together.

Nehemiah and other children are available for adoption. For more information, please contact Jason Monn at the National Adoption Center. Email: or call 267-443-1869.
