If foster children who need an adoptive home are between the ages of 8 and 18, they are considered special needs cases. And it's simply because of their age.
This week's Wednesday's child just moved into that category.
What's special about him is, pretty much everything!
8-year-old Gary likes doing his own thing.
He insisted on building a giant tower, instead of a bridge at the bridge-making station, when we met at OMSI in Portland, Oregon's Museum of Science and Industry.
Gary is an outgoing, handsome man young man of action.
He's enjoyed doing gymnastics and soccer, and you probably wouldn't be surprised by his favorite things about school. He likes PE and recess. When I asked what if he liked to play-chase girls at recess, he said “ewwww!”
Not yet! As far as chasing a meal, he likes pizza.
All in all, he's not picky. He'll eat anything.
When he grows up, Gary wants to be one of the good guys. He wants to be a cop.
Gary needs some good guys to step up for him.
He needs calm, patient parents, devoted to helping him reach his full potential, and to show him what it means to be a part of a loving family.
