Wednesday's Child-Malcolm

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - He looks much younger than his age. He likes most things 15-year-olds do,  video games, listening to music and doing back flips.  He is hoping to flip his way into the hearts of a forever family on this week's Wednesday's Child.

Malcolm is quiet but bonds well with others.  He likes taking a step back and observing everything around him.

"I would say I'm smart, handsome, like to go to church all the time and spend time with family", Malcolm told us.

Malcolm wants to attend Mississippi State University. His favorite subjects are math, science and social studies.

"Why do you like math, science and social studies? Because it is the easiest subject in school. Have you decided what you want to be when you grow up?  A police officer. Wow, now why do you like being a police officer, why would you like that? My brother used to be one", said Malcolm.

He is an athlete. His favorite sports are basketball, football and baseball.  Malcolm says he feels good about foster care.

"Because I have a family that takes care of me now, buy me things and stuff that I need, and personal items", Malcolm explained.

His social workers say Malcolm needs a two parent home with strong role models. He has a special celebration in mind once he's adopted.

"Celebrate my birthday. And what would be the best celebration? Go skating", Malcolm said.

Malcolm is also hoping for family night where he can play games, eat dinner, and watch television with his parents.   He says they can also use that time to plan great family trips.
