Isaah is an energetic and charming youth with dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. He has a passion for arts and crafts and enjoys singing in choir. When he is not playing video games or on his computer, Isaah likes to keep active, and enjoys a variety of sports that have included basketball, hockey, and swimming in the past. He currently participates in Tae Kwon Do.

Some of his favorite foods include pepperoni pizza and ice cream.

Isaah enjoys school, despite that it sometimes presents learning challenges for him. He does best with one-on-one attention in both school and home settings. Isaah is able to follow a routine, but he can be easily distracted and become frustrated. He does best when given gentle reminders and help to complete chores and school work.

When it comes to developing relationships, Isaah can be quick to make friends. He is learning to maintain friendships with preparation and coaching from supportive adults who care about him.

Isaah would be best matched with an experienced family who is nurturing and has a thorough understanding of parenting children with histories of experiencing trauma, as well as attachment. Prospective families should be open to participating in family therapy with Isaah prior to transitioning to their home and in following through with recommendations afterwards. He needs a family willing and able to provide him with a structured environment and to help him with setting and maintaining strong boundaries/limits. Isaah would also benefit from caregivers who will be patient and consistent with follow-through. Although out-of-state homes will be considered, Isaah does have existing connections with former foster parents, his birth mother, and siblings in Wisconsin that are essential to maintain.
