Derek is a smart, friendly and outgoing child who is full of energy! He enjoys being outside riding his bike, swimming, or playing basketball. When meeting new people, he initially presents himself as quiet and shy but then becomes talkative once he feels comfortable. Derek is intelligent, articulate, and interested in the world around him. He enjoys school and performs well academically. When he's by himself, he likes reading his favorite books.

Derek would like to be part of a small, active family who does lots of fun things like eating out and going to parks. He thinks living in the country would be enjoyable.

Derek needs an active, committed, patient family who will provide him lots of attention and guidance. The family needs to set consistent rules, boundaries and expectations. He will do well in a family with or without other children.
