Roy, 15, is a very polite and sensitive young man. He LOVES outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, boating, camping, and ATV's. He is very sociable and likes to spend time with other people, but he also enjoys mellow activities such as listening to music, taking walks and scavenging around the forest/nature. Roy also loves hugs and affection! He has a fantastic sense of humor that he loves to show off through telling stories and making people laugh. He enjoys attending church, and would like to do so more regularly.
Roy is looking forward to having a family and says, "I want to get adopted. I want to be part of a family." Roy would benefit from a nurturing environment that is also structured and predictable and has clear expectations. He wants a family who enjoys the outdoors all year round and does a lot of activities together. Also, Roy really wants a father who can act as a strong male role model for him. Following adoption, he would need to stay in contact with his birth grandparents and siblings.
