Tshombe, Age 17

Tshombe is an extremely handsome and charming young man. His easy smile and sheepish demeanor are immediately endearing. He is very energetic and is incredibly smart. He typically earns excellent grades in school. This is a great source of pride for Tshombe. He is motivated to have some of the finer things in life and looks forward to getting a job to earn his own money. He is athletic and competitive, but also enjoys clowning around and can be very funny!

Tshombe has had quite a bit of disappointment in his young life and is leery about the concept of adoption. He has had some difficulty with strong male personalities and tends to attach to women more easily. It would be beneficial for Tshombe to have a mom in an adoptive home to process his thoughts and feelings with. Tshombe can be impulsive at times and does not always think through the results of his actions. Because of this, he would be best suited to a family that can provide a balance of structure and freedom.
