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: 15

Deacon is a fun-loving and creative 15-year-old who dreams of one day living in a big city and possibly attending culinary training. Although he might describe himself as someone who likes to blend into a crowd, Deacon's good-natured, funny and warm-hearted personality makes him stand out to anyone who meets him! While he can be introverted and thoughtful at times, Deacon is generally an outgoing young man who is engaging and talkative, especially when it comes to subjects he's interested in such as Marvel Comics, music and the theater production he recently helped to produce at school.

Deacon has a contagious laugh and his resiliency is evident in his positive attitude. Some would describe him as an "old soul" and he may tell you that he is a bit weary of being a child and is eager to gain all of the skills he can in order to move onto the adventure of adulthood! Deacon possesses very good communication skills, age appropriate behaviors and is on track developmentally and academically. A family who is willing and eager to support his ongoing identity formation as well as his continued journey through grieving the number of losses he has experienced, would be a great fit for Deacon.

When discussing the most important qualities he is looking for in an adoptive family, Deacon describes his number one priority as finding a Christian family who can share in and support his strong faith. If that family were to also live in a big city/urban setting, it would be a definite win for him. Deacon is anxious and excited about moving on to the next chapter of his life. If you believe that you can offer the love, acceptance, commitment and support that he is looking for in his Forever Family, please inquire about Deacon today.

Wednesday's Child would like to extend a huge thank you to Captain Comics for graciously opening their store to us and to Lauren Harms at Shadylanestudios for her amazing photos of Deacon.
