Val’s Kids: James

Lake Tobias in Halifax is a favorite attraction for James. The  19 year old has spent years in foster care and is still looking for a permanent family. “Doesn’t matter the gender equality. Two moms or two dads. It’s fine with me it doesn’t really matter how the family is as long as they are loving and caring and I can be with them.” James said.

James is a senior this year and is looking forward to the prom and his future. “When I graduate from high school I want to go to Thaddeus Stevens for graphic design. That would possibly help me into the door for advertising or designing video or video games. James said. James’ adoption worker Don Farner says the teen has a few more years to get help from the foster care system. “Not long ago when a teenager turned 18 they would have to leave care.” The rules have changed and James can now receive help until he is 21. “He has access to lawyers, case workers, free place to stay food.” Farner said. Here’s what James hopes to find when it comes to a family. “Families have trust and love and it’s a nice blanket of comfort you can always go back to if there is some hardship in your life. Like with leaving high school having someone there to help me though that because I’m leaving friends behind moving on in my life. I want someone there through the entire way.” James said.
