Wednesday's Child - Domonique

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A sibling group of five was first featured on Wednesday's Child in 2009. They are actually from a family of 10. Since that time they continue to wait for their forever family. Adoption workers and the children are still hopeful they will find a permanent place to call home. This week we talk with the oldest Domonique.

Domonique is 10th grade, is very mature for his age and has a positive outlook on life.

"I'm a cool person, calm, collected. You know, I'm a people person. I like to communicate with everybody. I like to have fun", said Domonique.

As the oldest Domonique tries to look after his younger brothers and sisters.

"We are just really close. I love them like I love myself", Domonique said.

Domonique has big plans for his future and says he keeps his grades up because college is a must.

"What I wanna do, I want to study Genetic Engineering. Why? That's amazing. It's interesting, I like it. I like experimenting and stuff like taking like chromosomes, DNA, and stuff like that. I like doing it", said Domonique.

Although he is very focused on his future Dominique does take some time out for fun.

"I like basketball and football", Domonoque said.

Domonique is gentle and loving with his siblings even when they are not at their best behavior.

"Been kind of good for me. Most people wouldn't say that but, its been kind of good. 10 brothers and sisters, you gotta grow up quick", said Domonique.

Domonique hopes they find a family who is accepting and patient.

"I would love to have a family that would love each other for being themselves", Domonique said.

Domonique and two of his sisters, and little brother are still in foster care, waiting and hoping to be adopted.
