BILLY’S VIDEO

SUPPORTS AND ENCOURAGEMENT ARE IMPORTANT FOR SUCCESS. IT’S EVEN MORE ESSENTIAL FOR YOUNG PEOPLE. TODAY ON WEDNESAY’S CHILD LIZ EVERMAN INTRODUCES US TO A 12 YEAR OLD WHO IS WAITING FOR SOMEONE NURTURING ENOUGH TO OFFER HIM HOPE.

… BILLY SAYS HE LIKES NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC AND WATCHING SHOWS ABOUT ANIMALS, TOO. BUT NOTHING COMPARES TO A TRIP TO PET SMART. “THIS ONE KNOWS I’M NOT FOOD.”

12 YEAR OLD BILLY ISN’T AFRAID OF A LITTLE OLD SNAKE. BUT HE KNOW’S ENOUGH , TO BE CAUTIOUS…

“BASICALLY IF I COME ACROSS A SNAKE, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT KIND, LONG AS IT’S NOT POISONOUS I’D KEEP IT AS A PET.”

BILLY LOVES LEARNING ABOUT REPTILES, FISH, HORSES, YOU NAME IT, HE LIKES IT!

“READ BOOKS ABOUT ANIMALS AND WHAT THEY EAT, AND WHAT THEY DO AND HOW THEY HIBERNATE”

CONNECTING TO ANIMALS HELPS BILLY TO  CONNECT TO WITH PEOPLE BETTER. BILLY DESCRIBES HIS DREAM FAMILY THIS WAY:

“ME AND ONE PERSON OR A WHOLE FAMILY ALREADY MADE. AND I CAN BE ADOPTED IT DOESN’T MATTER WITH ME” …

A LOVE OF ANIMALS WOULD BE NICE, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY HE WANTS JUST A PLACE TO BELONG AND SOMEONE WHO LOVES HIM. IF YOU HAVE A PLACE IN YOUR HEART FOR BILLY, YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT ADOPTION AT WLKY.COM OR CALL ONE OF THE NUMBERS AT THE END OF THE VIDEO.

Right now, more than 300 Kentucky children are living in foster homes, group homes, and residential centers, waiting for adoptive families. They're not the babies many of us think of when we think of adoption.
