15-year-old Christian placed in adoptive home after family sees Wednesday's Child segment

When WFAA met Christian last March, he opened up about his painful time in foster care.

DALLAS — As we celebrate a new year, we look forward to the promise of a new beginning and the opportunity to be happy! One of our goals here at WFAA is to find a loving home for the foster children who tell us they feel alone.

And we're off to a good start in 2023!

When WFAA met Christian last March, he opened up about his painful time in foster care.

"Four years since 2018. It's been rough," he said in 2022.

Christian was soft spoken, but his suffering was loud and clear.

"It makes me feel left out, thrown under somewhere and feeling like I have no one,” he told WFAA.

Fast forward almost a year, and here’s a wonderful update on Christian. His caseworker said Christian, who is about to celebrate his 16th birthday, was placed in an adoptive home last August after a couple saw his Wednesday's Child report.

His caseworker says it's going well.

Typically, it takes at least six months after a child's been placed in an adoptive home before CPS can consummate the adoption. That means that if all goes well, Christian will be legally adopted next month in February.

For those of you who have ever adopted a child from foster care, you know that it's both an exciting and stressful time. For this reason, Christian's caseworker asks for your prayers that this is a smooth transition with the ultimate reward being Christian's adoption. He needs this, and he’s placed with a family who loves him.

Now, we just need to get them to the finish line. Until then, please pray.
