15-year-old Quineye is optimistic kid who would thrive in adoption

Las Vegas, NV - The fact that today's Wednesday's Child is making his 3rd appearance with us reflects the dedication he has to finding an adoptive home.  

Quineye doesn't like hearing the word "no".  Despite some physical challenges, he was only too happy to try his hand at laser tag on our visit about a year ago.

Today, we're at another fun place for kids:  The new Dave 'n' Busters in Summerlin.  As a music lover, Quineye's first stop was the dance dance revolution game.

Quineye's smile is infectious.  He's always positive.

"He has a heart of gold and I’ve never seen a child try harder than Quineye," says Becky, Quineye's Adoption Recruiter.

One of the reasons Quineye wears a helmet, is because he's hurt himself falling before... But in general, he puts no limits on himself or his future.

"He wants to be independent. He’s an independent guy. And he does have chores and things like that but he can do. The family that he is with works with him so well. They help him work with his limits and they push him to work a little harder on things that he may not be comfortable with. But they feel like there’s no limit for him." adds Becky.

Quineye's foster family is not an adoption resource in this case, so the search is still on for the right place where he can thrive.

"He really needs a family that’s going to advocate for him. He’ll warm any family’s heart. And so if a family were to give him a try, they are going to be lucky because he’s just that kind a kid and when you’re around him you just can’t stop being happy because he such a happy guy," claims Becky.

If you think you could give Quineye a chance at a family...Call the Adoption Exchange at 702-436-6335.
