We’ve been following today’s Wednesday’s Child for years. He’s not so much a “child” any more, but he *still* is hoping to be adopted. Dave Courvoisier has our story.
We’ve featured Junmarion many times over the years…This last was in 2016 at a police substation… Back then he was pretty sure he wanted to be in law enforcement.
But after this visit to Elite Flight Training at the North Las Vegas airport… Junmarion has his eyes set on piloting planes, even getting behind the controls in a simulator.
“I just wanted to check everything out and you know see how actually training of pilots are because after the first time,” says Junmarion.
He also got to sit in a real plane, but it was too windy last week to take him up.
“That kind of feel kind of good, for me I just thought that just made my day kind of happy… because my day was happy anyway I just you know I kind of wanted to see what they actually do and how they fly the smaller planes, not the bigger ones,” admits Junmarion.
Junmarion is 15, and feels the clock ticking for adoption.
“Yeah, he’s very outspoken about what he wants and we talk about it every single month that I go out and see him,” says Erica, Junmarion’s DFS Case Worker.
Junmarion is always happy and smiling… His case worker says that’s his nature.
“He brings a lot of kindness, he’s very sweet, caring, he’s very caring, he’s always thinking of others. Just very polite and a great sense of humor so I’m sure there would be a lot of laughing in the household with him around,” adds Erica.
This teen just needs a family that will support him, and give him a firm foundation for the rest of his life.
“It doesn’t really matter as long as there a good family and treat me right like other families do then I’m kinda good with it. You know,” says Junmarion with a smile.
“I think anybody would be lucky to have him but even if he were to go off on his own as an adult I see him making a really big difference in the world and just wanting to help others whether he’s a cop or now a pilot, and just kind of spreading his positivity around anybody that he meets and just wanting to help people he’s just such a caring kids just really great to see him,” says Erica.
