Do you love Transformers? If so, Nathaniel, who prefers to go by "Nate," would love to talk with you about all things Transformers! A hands-on kind of guy, he can often be found folding origami or building things out of LEGOs. Nate would be just as happy sitting down to discuss the allure of Camaros, Lamborghinis, and semi-trucks as he would putting his athleticism to work by running or playing soccer and hockey. He is not one to easily get bored and is open to new experiences! Nate is a curious and inquisitive student who is really starting to enjoy the eighth grade, particularly writing stories in English class and doing experiments in science. He currently benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan), speech therapy and counseling. The caseworker prefers a family in which Nate can be the oldest child; however, all family types will be considered. He would love to be part of a family who will take him exploring and to a water park someday. Nate has some important people in his life that he would like to stay connected with, including his siblings and long-time mentor. He would thrive in a family with parents who are patient and would take the time to let Nate get to know them. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. For South Dakota children, only homestudied families from all states are encouraged to inquire.
