Wednesday’s Child: 15-Year-Old David
BOSTON (CBS) – David, 15, is a well-liked Caucasian boy who is proud to be the manager of his junior high’s basketball team. It affords him the opportunity to watch a game he loves, get to know his peers, and be his charming self.
Legally free for adoption, David is seeking a family who shares his love for animals. David has talked about rescuing animals and possibly becoming an animal cop someday. He is nurturing with the pets he has in his foster home.

David has made tremendous gains at school where he has the support of special education services. His reading skills have improved, and he has been quite successful in science and social studies. Additionally, David’s ability to communicate has been eased by the use of hearing aids and speech therapy.
David is hopeful about finding a permanent family, one who enjoys spending time with him. He will benefit from a family that will encourage all of his progress and continue to advocate on his behalf. David will also need a family to help him maintain his connection to his siblings and birth mother.
