JET 24/FOX66 is helping foster children find warm and loving homes. Tonight, we head to Presque Isle to meet a caring, business-minded teen.
On a pleasant summer day, 17 year old Justin takes in the sights and sounds of the beach. “I think being out in nature is like really pretty, because you can finally feel at peace. You don’t feel boxed in and it’s just wonderful.”
Just as wonderful are his plans for the future. Justin wants to study business and psychology in college. “Just seeing kids in my shoes that wish they could have people to talk to them. And then, the business part, I’ve been wanting to start my own computer company with a couple of friends.”
In fact, working with numbers is a hobby for Justin. “I like to play video games, I like working with numbers. My favorite thing to do with numbers is algorithms.” But, what he’s really counting on is a family to help him reach his goals. “Honestly, someone who cares, someone who guides you in the right direction no matter how you do; and will always try to help you and not shove you out of the door as soon as you do something wrong.”
At a young age, Justin has already experienced a lot, but he knows there are many more lessons to learn. “I’m very understanding of a lot. I have a lot to learn in life, and I’d like to learn all of it.”
If you think Justin would be a good fit for your family or want to learn more about options for adoption, contact Family Services of Northwestern Pennsylvania at 814-866-4549.
