Nickolaus dreams of becoming a professional football player when he grows up! If you name a sport, there’s a good chance he knows how to play it, but football and soccer are his current favorites. Nickolaus also has fun playing Minecraft, and his superpower of choice would be invisibility.

He is a bright fifth grader.

A two-parent family in a rural location, in which Nickolaus can be the only or youngest child is preferred; however, his caseworker will consider all family types for placement. Nickolaus has a close connection that he would like to maintain following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.


For Missouri children, both homestudied and non-homestudied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.

For more information on becoming an adoptive family, please email or call 800-554-2222.
