He’s got a big heart, a laid-back personality and describes himself as a “thinker.”

Malachi enjoys playing video games, watching YouTube and anything tech. He also likes lifting weights, playing football, and running track.

Malachi’s ideal forever family would be active and be able to provide unconditional love and support.
