Mahpiapejuta (Gabe) is a caring, respectful, and easy-going teen who enjoys playing basketball. He also likes camping, hunting, and other outdoor activities. Making friends comes naturally to Gabe, who likes hanging out with other kids. He can be somewhat quiet and reserved until he gets to know you. Gabe works hard in school and is determined to reach his goals for his future.
An active, two-parent family that is patient and able to provide structure as well as support his interest in participating in various activities would be a good fit for Gabe. He would do best as the youngest child in the home or with siblings who are close to him in age.
Following adoption, Gabe will need to maintain contact with his siblings and other extended family members.
