Grant Me Hope: Jacob

Jacob is aiming high for his future.

The high school junior who loves basketball and board games also wants to be a doctor someday.

But first, he wants to find his forever family.

Jacob describes himself as outgoing with an interesting sense of humor. 

“I can be outgoing once I get to know a person. I can be athletic at certain times. I have an interesting sense of humor. I do pretty well in school. History is awesome,” said Jacob.

Jacob wants to share his love of history with others.

“I want to share my knowledge of history to some kids that might not learn from a textbook,” explained Jacob.

Jacob would like to be part of a family that has a dog.

“I’m not a big cat person. Dogs, I love dogs!”

This 16-year-old is dreaming of a better world.

“If I could change the world I think we have like more friendly people and more positivity,” said Jacob.

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.
