Grant Me Hope: James

James is a bright young man who is curious about everything.

He loves pizza, dogs, and is kind and caring.

He is hoping today is the day he finds his forever family. 

James describes himself as kind and funny.

“I’m 15 and I’m going to be in 10th grade. I’m kind, I’m funny. I guess I would say I’m a real good friend to people,” said James.

James enjoys the outdoors, and is eager to embrace hobbies that will allow him to spend more time in nature.

“I’ll go outside, run around, act like I’m hunting. When I get a knife I’m going to start whittling, which means I’ll get to take the bark off wood as long as it’s not attached to a tree. I’m sort of an outdoorsy person,” explained James.

James wants to be a scientist when he grows up, and dreams of finding a family to adopt him and help him reach his goals.

“I would like a family that would teach me how to hunt, teach me important life skills and stuff, such as how to take care of myself when I get older and all that,” said James. “I hope that a good family will adopt me, and I hope that you guys are going to be really nice to me. I just have to say I’m a really nice kid, one last time.”

Grant Me Hope is a collaboration between WWTV, Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange and the business community — all working together to find foster children a forever home.
