Gift of Love: 7-year-old Troy

By Jennifer Hines - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - He's looking for a hole in one, not just in his putt-putt golf game but also in his quest to find a forever family. 7-year-old Troy is excited to try his hand at putt-putt during his summer vacation before he heads back to school in the 2nd grade.

"Troy is shy," said April Hays, his caseworker. "It takes a lot for him to warm up to somebody."

And, once you do, Troy is pretty easy going. He does really well in school, almost always making 100s on his tests. He's also an expert speller. Troy is a pretty picky eater, but when it comes to food he likes, there's no stopping him. He's got the appetite of a growing boy!

"He interacts well one-on-one or in small groups," said Hays.

He would fit best in a family where he is the only child. Although shy, Troy loves to laugh. He likes funny jokes and the Beethoven movies.

"He's funny, too," said Hays. "He just has that quiet sense of humor that he doesn't do it to get the attention that's just his personality."

Troy is a big fan of country music and the Dallas Cowboys. He says he would love to have his room decorated with Dallas Cowboys stuff. Troy loves the outdoors, too. When he grows up, he wants to be a cowboy and ride horses all day.

"[He likes] basketball, football, golf it doesn't matter," said Hays. "[He] likes riding his bicycle. He likes swimming. He likes being outside."

Troy also has big plans to go to college. Troy's excited about adoption. He wants to be the only child for a change and really hopes to have a mom and a dad and find the gift of love. If you'd like more information on Troy, call our Gift of Love hotline, toll-free, 1-888-kids-275.
