TYLER, TX (KLTV) - He is an outgoing child who enjoys riding his bike and roller skating. Now, all he needs is a forever family to share in the fun.

Adam is a sweet and energetic child who loves one-on-one attention. Adam loves to explore everything and will ask tons of questions. He is very inquisitive!

"My favorite thing to do is read and play games," said Adam. "Plus, I like to ride bikes."

This sixth grader loves to read so much he is even carrying one of his books with him at the play ground. He thrives on positive attention and works hard to receive praise. When it comes to school, Adam is in a small classroom where there is more one-on-one attention and where he is able to continue to improve his school room behavior. Adam has made great progress and really enjoys school, and his career choice fits his adventuresome personality.

"That's easy! A stuntsman!" he exclaimed.

He says while he is good at stunts, he needs some more practice! Adam is very outgoing and sometimes is a little too outgoing with his friends, and plays a little rough. The good news is he responds well to redirection. When it comes to his three wishes, Adam wants thousands of books, hundreds of bikes and for his third wish.

"To be with the best family in the whole wide world," said Adam.

He needs a family that is loving, patient and consistent with expectations and enforcing boundaries. He will also require structure and consistent supervision. Adam has siblings that have been placed separately who he wants to remain in contact with. It is important his family is willing and comfortable with supporting these relationships. As for Adam's perfect family?

"[I want] kind, generous parents, really nice parents, kind, generous sister, a nice little brother [and] everything a little kid could ever want," said Adam.

After all, what child doesn't want a forever family that can show them the gift of love?
