Wednesday's Child

Las Vegas - There is no such thing as a child who is un-adoptable.  On Wednesday's Child, it's just a matter of finding the right match.  Tonight's candidate is an affectionate kid named Stephen who's 8 years old. 

"Very active when we do like outside events he you know he’s the first one to go outside, wanting to go outside pointing to go outside, so he likes to do the ball playing catch outside with a kiddie pool he’s the first one to go in there without being scared or anything," says Jose', his main caretaker.

Jose' spends more time than anyone else with Stephen at the group home where he lives.  He says it's very easy to form a bond with this young man.

"He’s very special, very special to a lot of people especially to myself. He tends to grab a lot of people’s heart, you know just the way how you know how he interacts with you just where you feel the need… the love that he needs, the care that he needs… very very satisfying love that he offers and that he wants from other people," adds Jose.

Stephen is learning to verbalize, but he communicates his wants and needs very easily.  He plays well by himself or with others, and he loves to tease.  On top of that, he always eats his greens!

"Those are the main, main happy moments is food lunchtime and breakfast and broccoli he loves broccoli so vegetables... so very very rare that he will not eat his vegetables… number one," claims Jose'.

Stephen would fit into almost any home that's willing to take the time to love him and work with him.

"Very special kid, very loving kid you know. Just wish him the best you know and I know he needs and he wants a family that would love him and care for him the way he is needed to be cared for," says Jose'.
