    Micah is a 10-year-old boy who is inspired by nature and its beauty.

    He lives at Hope House of Austin in Liberty Hill, a home that offers special care for the disabled.

    Micah has a team of women that support him in all aspects of his life, but they are eager to find him a loving forever family.

    "He is clinically diagnosed with intellectual disability in autism," said Child Protective Services Developmental Disabilities Specialist Rhonda Dieterich.

    Micah's caseworker Jennifer Plummer, and his Court Appointed Special Advocate Heidi Lersch both say his enthusiasm for life and the outdoors are matched by his affection towards others.

    "He will be spontaneous with his hugs he will just come up to you and give you a hug," said Lersch.

    Plummer added that "Micah has been through a lot in his short childhood," and said, "he needs a family that is nurturing and that can just give him all the love that he needs and deserves."

    Forever Families airs every Wednesday on CBS Austin. Micah's full bio is featured here in The Heart Gallery of Central Texas.
