Television station KWTX recently profiled Samuel, a clearly remarkable young man with a great desire. He is only 12 years old and has been in the Texas foster care system for more than two years. His only dream is to build a life with parents who give him the unconditional love he deserves.
In the interview, he admitted that he is tired of Child Protective Services and has been in foster care since February 8, 2017. He needs the public’s help to spread his mission. While he has grown tired of CPS, he says he is not tired of the people he has met through the system who inspire him.
Kate Thomas, Samuel’s caseworker, said: “He said he wants to open a residential treatment center. That’s the kind of facility he’s in right now. He wants to show kids one day, ‘This was me when I was your age, and you can get out of that too.'”
According to Thomas, Samuel gets along well with adults and is ready and able to give a lot of love. She thinks that he will prosper if he is given the chance to be raised by a proper family. She has said: “He has the capacity to love and wants to love. He just needs that family to take a risk with him and give him that home, like all of our children.”
In the state of Texas, prospective adoptive parents must be licensed. If you think you or someone you know could give young Samuel the family for life he so richly deserves, your local CPS office will have more information.
