Melaki is a very active 11-year-old boy who enjoys music and sports.  Soccer is his favorite sport. He likes to help with chores and is described as kind, appreciative, well-behaved and well-mannered. Melaki has made a great amount of progress in recent months, and he needs a forever family who is committed to helping him continue to overcome the trauma and loss he has experienced in his young life.  His parents will need to be patient, structured, and strong advocates for the education and emotional supports that will help him to thrive.  Melaki is connected to several biological family members and would like a family who is willing to maintain his connections and allow contact with these important people.
