Wednesday's Child: Dalton

DALLAS – This week’s Wednesday's Child will never forget his first trip to the State Fair of Texas.
Not only did he get to try a world-famous Fletcher's Corny Dog, but he also won enough prizes for all his friends!

"When was the last time you came to the State Fair of Texas?" asked News 8's Cynthia Izaguirre.

"Actually this is my first time," said Dalton with a bright smile.

Dalton collects stuffed animals, so he added to his collection while visiting the fair. He even won a Cowboys chair.

"This chair feels good,” said Dalton. “I'm going to put it in my rood and sit down."
And the food didn't disappoint either.

"I ate a corny dog and it was really good,” said Dalton. “I recommend it for the people out there."

Dalton is incredibly sweet and respectful. He can be talkative once you get to know him.

"I like video games, cars, football and basketball."

Dalton likes animals too and would like a dog one day.

"I want a family with dogs and cats and people who are nice."

Dalton will need a lot of structure and supervision in his placement. He also hopes for some peace and quiet.

"I want a family who doesn't argue a lot."

Dalton would most likely do well with a family who has therapeutic experience to help him work through his anger issues. His biological parents have never been in the picture. He currently lives in a group home.

"It's been hard having to move around."

But Dalton is hopeful he will soon have a family to love him.

In the meantime, he remembers to say his prayers every night for those he loves and for himself.

"I pray for me just to have a good day and not get hurt."
