This week's Wednesday's Child is now 13-years-old and says he is waiting for the chance to go hunting and fishing with his very own dad. He is in the 6th grade and says his number one hope for a forever family is that they love him no matter what.
Kenneth says everyone calls him Kenny G, like the jazz musician. Kenny enjoys attending church and participating in group activities.
"I like to play video games and basketball. And you're great at bowling. Do you like bowling a lot? Yes mam. What do you like about bowling? Well you get strikes", said Kenny.
Kenny is 6th grade this year and does well in art, music and P.E.
"I like reading. What do you like to read? Probably Harry Potter, something like that. Have you decided what you want to be when you grow up? Yes mam. I want to be a policeman cause they arrest people and protect the citizens", Kenny said.
Kenny has other siblings that he says he would like to stay in contact with.
"It's six of us. 1 girl and the rest are boys. Do you get to see them a lot? No mam. And you miss them? Yes mam", said Kenny.
Farm living is what Kenny is hoping for, but he says more than anything he just wants his own family.
"The ones that got animals and somewhere near my brother", Kenny said.
Whether its bowling, fishing or football, Kenny says the most important thing is having a family to share every experience.
