Manuel M

This is Manuel.

He is a 17-year-old boy.

Meet Manuel! Manuel is a sweet, big-hearted young man with a lot of love to give to the right people. He is sensitive, caring, and helpful. He enjoys school and stated that his favorite subjects are PE, science, and social studies. He has two siblings that he is not being adopted with but whom he cares very much about. He would need a family that could support ongoing contact between him and his brother and sister.

Manuel wants a mom and a dad. He is also open to having a brother and/or sister. He would like it if his family were active and outdoorsy. Manuel would benefit from a family that is consistent, patient, and understanding.

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
