WEDNESDAY'S CHILD: Ten-year-old Dakoda faces another Christmas without a forever family
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
Sometimes, adding just one word to the end of a sentence makes all the difference.
Tonight’s Wednesday’s child, Dakoda, shows you one word has the power to change a story and give hope.
Ten-year-old Dakoda faces another Christmas without a forever family.
“It would make me cry,” he says of the holidays. “it would make me like feel like no one wants me.”
It’s a sting of sadness he and other Wednesday’s child kiddos feel from time to time -- a story forming throughout the years while they wait: nobody wants me.
But you can add one word that changes everything -- the word is ‘yet.’ No one wants me yet.
Someone will adopt Dakoda soon -- maybe you, reading right now at home. and if you’re feeling it, there’s some things you need to know about this kiddo:
He loves to draw. he’s great at board games. a good book is, to him, a good friend.
And he has a reason for reading:
“[So] I can get a job and I can be successful,” he says.
When he’s successful, he wants a cat. He’ll name it sprinkles.
“Cuz they’re sweet and tasty,” Dakoda says.
Dakoda’s humor comes out of heartache. and he’s wise too – he’s exactly the same age as my twins, with advice for how I can get them to clean their room:
“Tell them they have to clean it up before dinner,” he told me
I’m going to do that tonight.
High five, Dakoda. Now let’s get you a family.
