Sunday's Child: Active youth needs committed parents

By Staff reports

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Tim is 12 years old and is looking for a forever family to call his own. He has a good sense of humor, is active and enjoys playing outside, riding his bike and playing video games. He has a good appetite, but his diet has to be closely monitored for his type-1 diabetes and celiac disease. It will be very important for his forever family to be familiar with both of his conditions. He does take medication to help control his diabetes.

Tim has experienced a lot in his young life but is making wonderful progress. His social worker believes Tim would fit in well in a home where there are older siblings who can be positive role models. He needs parents who are willing to commit to him and provide a loving, safe and stable home.

Many children in West Virginia are legally eligible to be adopted and are waiting for permanent and loving families. For more information on adoption contact Mission West Virginia at 866-225-5698 or email
