SALT LAKE CITY — You can't be around Wells and not feel good, and he's hoping to be a permanent part of someone's family soon.
If one word describes the 15-year-old, it's joy. A big smile constantly plastered on his face, with a sweet nature to go along with it — and a pure love of good, old fashioned fun.
"I like to play video games, read, draw, color," he said.
His favorite color is red, his favorite food is pizza, and his self description suits him perfectly.
"Friendly, kind, generous," he said.
Wells chose Planet Play for his profile shoot because he says it's his favorite place: a place he doesn't get to go often, living in foster care. He can't remember how long he's been living in a foster home. And while he says it's not all bad, he is excited about the idea of having his own family.
"Just ‘cause I've never been adopted before," he said.
