Tim, who is now 13 years old and is from Texas, was placed in the state’s foster care system when he was only 3 years old. He has been waiting for quite some time for a family to take him in and raise him as their own, for someone to give him the title of son.
Even after 10 years, Tim is still a part of the foster care system. Recently, the young man made an appearance on the program Wednesday’s Child in the hopes of finding a family who would adopt him.
The adolescent is a patient at the foster children’s residential treatment facility at the moment. Although he has spent time in a number of different foster homes, none of them have been permanent placements for him.
Tim promises that he is well-behaved and that the family that adopts him won’t have any difficulties as a result of his presence in their home. He used the word “perfect” to characterize his conduct when he was at the facility.
In the episode “Wednesday’s Child,” there was a picture of Tim when he was seven years old. In the picture, he was vibrant and his beautiful blue eyes shone with happiness.
Those eyes are still the most beautiful shade of blue, but they seem older and more worn out today. Tim has been bouncing about from one position to the next for a number of years, which is the kind of circumstance that might wear anybody down.
Tim, just like every other kid in the foster care system, wishes for a family to adopt him so that he may have stability and consistency in his life as well as a warm and welcoming home that he can call his own.
Tim stated that the lack of stability in his life makes it difficult for him to fall asleep at night.
“It’s almost like being in a jail that doesn’t have any walls. You have runners, but where are you going if you run if you don’t know the area? There is no other place to go except straight back to where you started running from”.
Tim is looking for a family that will always adore him and won’t ever give up on him.
He dreams of having parents who will not only bring him up until he is an adult, but who he will also be able to refer to as “family” for the rest of his life. He said, “At the very least, I want a mother and a father.”
Tim is looking forward to the day when he will have a mother who will care about him in the same way as the mothers he sees on television or the mothers of his classmates do.
Tim’s ideal father would be someone who could serve as a positive example for him, someone who would play catch with him and show him what it is to be a man.
