Life has thrown 15 year-old Trey some curve balls. He's been in foster care for four years.

"It's been kind of painful because you don't see any of your siblings," he said. "You don't see nobody because the situation I'm in right now is different from anybody else."
Trey's situation is different because when he goes to school most of his peers have homes. But, he said he has faith the future holds something good.
"I want to help people like me because I know what they're going through," he said. 
Despite the challenges, Trey enjoys school and has a lot of friends.
"I'm an athletic kid," he said. "I like baseball and basketball. I make 'A's and 'B's and 'C's."
Trey loves new challenges. The batting cages at Alley Cats in Arlington was a good one.
"It was kind of hard," he said. "I haven't batted in a long time, but it was a challenge."
At school, Trey's favorite subject is math. It's a learning environment where he feels safe.
"You get to see your friends at lunch and talk to them," he said. "The school doesn't have no bullies."
Trey loves to learn almost as much as he likes to play. He already has plans to further his education.
"My dream is to go to college and after college I want to get my Master's Degree," he said.
But all the education in the world still doesn't measure up to what Trey wants most. He said the only thing that will make his pain go away is finding his forever home.
"To be adopted by somebody that cares about me, somebody who loves me," he said.
