Nicholas is helpful and polite boy with endearing brown eyes. His favorite color is blue and his favorite food is pepperoni pizza. Nicholas likes to draw and play games that include Monopoly, Clue, Yahtzee, Chess, and Checkers. One of his all-time favorite movies is The Page Master, which is about a boy who likes adventure and uses his imagination, much like Nicholas himself.

Nicholas enjoys school and has a strong desire to do well. He describes gym to be his favorite class because he likes playing sports, especially basketball. Nicholas has also participated in Special Olympics and likes bowling. Nicholas enjoys singing, playing with toys, reading books, and putting together puzzles. Despite his favorite animal being a polar bear, Nicholas hopes one day to be able to experience working on a ranch, where he would get to feed and take care of horses. He also hopes to one day be able to go to Disney World in Florida so he can hold hands with Mickey and see all the people.

Nicholas would benefit most from nurturing and patient parents who will be able to devote time and attention to him. Furthermore, he needs parents who will be understanding of his challenges, have realistic expectations of him, and be willing to participate in a transition plan that would include successful pre-placement visits.

Nicholas would like a family that he can spend his favorite holiday, Christmas, with. He would like a family who also shares some of his interests, which include: spending time outdoors, going to the lake and swimming (in the shallow end), playing in the sand, listening to country music, some Springsteen, and one of his current favorite hits, "One More Night." He is open to being part of a home with other children he could get to know better, as well as a home with pets that could include either a dog or cat.

In Nicholas’ own words, "I am looking for love from a Mom and a Dad. I want someone to care for me. I would like to be adopted because I want to stay there and not move again."
