Editor's Note: Window on the Clearwater has joined the Wednesday's Child network to help spread the word about children that are waiting for families to give them the loving care that they need. Each Wednesday we will profile a different child. For more information about Wednesday's Child and how you can be involved check the web site at:


Age: 10

"My name is Austin. I love being outside and playing, and I love superheroes. I want a mom and a dad, and I want to find a family so I don't have to keep moving."

Austin's wide grin and piercing blue eyes will quickly endear you to this young man. He thrives with individual attention and sometimes needs to be reminded that he is precious and loved. He responds to kindness and a listening ear.

Austin is looking for a mom and a dad that are kind, loving, patient, and active. He wants to find permanency with a Christian couple and possibly siblings. He is full of questions and loves to build things and explore outside. He loves all kinds of animals, especially horses and chickens. Austin would love to own a dog. He is compassionate towards animals and loves to have the responsibility of caring for them. His dream is to live or work on a farm or ranch.

Austin is a happy kid in spite of his rough beginnings. He has experienced a lot of trauma, but has made tremendous progress in all areas of his life because of the team of caring individuals that work with him. He is ready to settle into a family that will accept him for who he is and love him unconditionally. A home that can blend structure and nurture would be a good fit for Austin.

Austin is looking for his real-life superheroes in a mom and a dad. If you could be that hero, Austin's team would love to talk with you more.
