Story Profile

David is a young man whose big personality beams as brightly as his smile. Inquisitive and social, he is in his element during shared activities with a goal in mind and his own part to play. David wants families to know that he has worked hard on his behaviors, and although he has an occasional bad day, the majority are good days.

David loves to make people laugh! His quirky sense of humor and active imagination shine as he improvises ridiculous lyrics and funny dances. Younger children particularly appreciate his antics. He has a soft spot in his heart for them, too, regularly stepping in to act as interpreter for youngsters who are having difficulty making themselves understood. David greatly appreciates boundaries and proper consequences when either himself or others misbehave. Fair treatment is very important to him.

David enjoys riding his bike, is interested in math, and devotes hours to reading comic books, graphic novels and young adult fiction by authors like Rick Riordan and Tonke Dragt. His true passion, though, is all things electronic. Computer and video games are a favorite pastime; David loves playing Minecraft!

When asked about his hopes for the future, David shared that he hopes to become a famous Youtuber. He has also shared that he would like to have a dog (Corgis are his favorite), his own bedroom, and family members who will play video games with him. David says he does not have any meaningful attachments currently in his life, although he would like to one day be in closer contact with his siblings.

David will do best with parents who can spend one-on-one time with him and provide the structure, support, and love he needs to thrive. David’s team looks forward to hearing from families in Alaska and outside the state who can provide a loving home for him. It’s important that David’s forever family help him maintain the positive connections he has created.
