Wednesday's Child - Montavious

This week's Wednesday's Child has been featured with his sister and alone several times since 2008. 16 year old Montavious has grown up in foster care but still hopes he will find a permanent home.

We first met Montavious in January of 2008. He was not very talkative but told us everything was easier when he could be with his sister. Montavious is now a teenager. He is 10th grade and enjoys school.

"Well I'm very smart, I mean, I can be shy at times. I'm also very sociable. I'm funny and I love to laugh. I love to make people smile. And I tell people if you don't see me smiling and laughing then you know you should ask what's wrong because I'm always happy", Montavious said.

Montavious says he enjoys athletics but he is not much of a basketball or football player.

"People like to see me play basketball, but you know, I'm kind of a track person", said Montavious.

Montavious says his hobbies include writing, listening to music and hanging out with his friends.

"My favorite hobbies you know, I like to write poetry, I love music", Montavious said.

Montavious is hoping he will find a forever family with two parents who will be devoted to him and his education.

"I want to be a computer designer because I love technology. I'm a big tech person", said Montavious.

Montavious is the youngest of six. He has 3 sisters and 2 brothers.

"It's difficult because you know I'm the only one left in custody, everybody else has grown up and got out and are on their own and doing good, and I was wondering well, what's taking me so long", Montavious said.

Montavious says being in foster care is like running track, you can't give up and hard work does pay off in the end, especially when you have your own family waiting at the finish line.
