This 16-yr old has waited long enough for a family to call his own.

Las Vegas, NV - Teenage foster children who never get adopted are basically on their own when they turn 18.  That's a short two years away for today's Wednesday's Child - Malachi.   And yet, Dave Courvoisier says he's one of the most positive adoption candidates he's ever met.

We managed to arrange for Malachi to get some lessons behind the controls at "Blend - The D-HJ Institute"...  No big deal... Just one of his dreams come true.

"I was really surprised I made... a lot of kids don’t get this so I appreciate it," said Malachi. 

That's Malachi's attitude about almost everything -- always looking up... Always a gentleman -- despite plenty of hard knocks in his young life.

"Oh his face just lit up he was so excited I think he was a little shocked he was like wow were doing something this fun? Yes!" said Calli, Malachi's Adoption Recruiter.

Calli says Malachi has been waiting for an adoption for years.

"He has a very clear understanding of adoption and he wants to be adopted. He’s excited. He’s eager to find adoptive home and meet a potential adoptive placement," adds Calli.

Because he is so well-mannered, Malachi would be an easy placement.  But he needs lots of individual attention.

"So for Malachi we are definitely looking for him to be the only child or the youngest in the home. He would do so well in that environment… tons of attention and love and patience," assures Calli.

"A family that loves me that takes care of me and get to know me and take out to places just a family that can love me," claims Malachi.

There are no obstacles to Malachi's adoption right away.  Call the Adoption Exchange to get the process started:  702-436-6335.
