nats of tj gearing up
TJ HADN'T REALLY CLIMBED A WHOLE LOT.
BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT..
HE TACKLED THE WALLS AT EDGEWORKS CLIMBING GYM LIKE
it was kind of exciting but kinda scary at the same
'cause my fingers kept slipping
BUT, TJ HELD ON, AND MET EACH CHALLENGE.
WHEN HIS FEET ARE ON SOLID GROUND, HE LIKES KEEPING
02;58;07;11 i like climbing, riding bikes, going to
skate parks, stuff like that
HE ALSO LIKES SPORTS, WOODWORKING AND DRAWING
02;59;31;16 i draw dragons, i can draw really cool
dogs, cats, dragons, zebras, stuff like that
TJ TELLS ME HE READS AT AN ADULT LEVEL AND LOVES A
THE HARRY POTTER SERIES IS HIS FAVORITE, AND HE'D
LIKE TO CHECK OUT THE NEWEST OFF SHOOT.
TJ RECENTLY TURNED 10.
HE'S BEEN IN FOSTERCARE MOST OF HIS LIFE.
03;01;39;23 about 22.
i've been in foster care for 6 years, almost 7.
and you've been in 22 different places, yep, in 7
what's it like.
must be hard.
yes, yes it is.
how do you explain it to somebody who doeatn' know
whtat that's like.
i don't know.
i've never really tried to explain it because i could
never think asbout how to explain it
IT'S TIME TJ KNOWS WHAT IT'S LIKE TO HAVE STABILITY.
TO UNPACK HIS THINGS AND NOT THINK ABOUT THE NEXT
TIME HE'LL PACK THEM AGAIN TO MOVE IN WITH NEW FAMILY,
GO TO A NEW SCHOOL...
03;02;57;16 i don't really like havning to move a
lot and it's kind of disappointing having to move
TJ'S HOPE IS THAT HE WOULD BE ADOPTED BY 2 PARENTS
WHO ARE PATIENT AND KIND
03;04;21;15 nicely, not being yelled at and stuff
OTHER KIDS IN THE FAMILY WOULD BE OK, BUT HE'D PREFER
NO BABIES OR TODDLERS.
TJ IS USED TO SHARING A ROOM, BUT THINKS HAVING HIS
OWN SPACE WOULD BE PRETTY GREAT.
03;05;22;09 i would probably hang up some of my drawings
COULD YOU HELP THIS BOY MAKE A FRESH START, AND OFFER
THE SUPPORT AND LOVE HE DESERVES?
WITH WEDNESDAY'S CHILD.
