OGDEN — This week's Wednesday's Child doesn't have any shortage of enthusiasm or sense of humor.

Thomas is an outgoing kid — a 16-year-old high school sophomore who loves to play video games and be outside.

But it's inside a tunnel of powerful air where Thomas really got a natural high. He recently tried out his skydiving skills in the wind tunnel at iFly in Ogden.

Thomas thrives on interaction. He has a spry sense of humor, as well as some surprise skills in the kitchen. His favorite food, he said, is "anything Asian."

About Thomas:

Birthday: June 1996

Grade: 10th

Interests: Hunting, dancing, Scouting

Special needs: Thomas is a hard worker and does well in school. He attends counseling, which will need to continue after placement.

However, there's a big piece of Thomas's life missing: a family to share it with. He is currently in foster care, hoping to be adopted into a permanent family.

"Right now I don't have a family, and I would really like one," Thomas said.

He wonders if his future family is reading his story right now and has adoption in mind. "I'm hoping it will happen," he said.

If you're interested in providing Thomas with a permanent home, contact The Adoption Exchange at 801-265-0444.
