By Jennifer Hines - bio | email | Twitter

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Dustin loves watching movies and playing video games. Now, he is hoping for a "happily ever after" of his own when it comes to finding his forever family.

It was an afternoon of fun and adventure at the Discovery Science Place - a perfect outing for 10-year-old Dustin, who loves swimming, playing, science and doing science experiments. Dustin also enjoys playing video games, watching movies and riding bikes.

Baseball his favorite sport and this summer Dustin got to see the Texas Rangers play.

"My favorite part was when we caught one of the balls that Josh Hamilton threw," said Dustin.

Dustin is unusually perceptive and seems to understand a lot of what happens around him and the feelings and actions of others. He shows a lot of concern for others and wants their approval.

Dustin has a brother and sister who he will need to maintain contact with.

As for his forever family.

"I'm not really picky as long as I get adopted," said Dustin.

He is not a picky eater, either. He likes vegetables and fruits.

When it comes to school Dustin loves math, but reading is a little hard for him. Dustin requires a great deal of structure in the classroom in order to be successful.

Dustin enjoys going to church and says he wants to be a missionary when he grows up.

"I like Bible stories and I believe in God and there are some people in the world don't know about God," Dustin explained.

He says he can't remember ever wanting to do anything else.

"I'll travel all over the world to tell people about Jesus," he said.

Dustin hopes he will soon have his own good news to share - news that he has a forever family to show him the gift of love.
