CHARLOTTE, NC.- This week’s Waiting Child will make your heart melt.  He’s outgoing and has a big personality. The only thing missing in his life is a family to call his own.

Meet Dustin. He’s 13 years old and loves being outdoors, “I usually build forts, and swing on the vine and jump on the trampoline.”  When it’s time to bring it inside, he jumps straight to playing with his leggos.  Dustin says he’s currently building a giant chocolate factory, inspired from one of his favorite movies Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, “I keep on building and I don’t even think how I’m going to build it I just do it.”

I asked Dustin what he wants to be when he gets older and his list consists of a wide range of careers, “I want to be a tornado chaser or a rapper or an artist or a builder.” Dustin says he has a fascination with severe weather and based on his love for leggos you can see why he’s interested in architecture but a rapper, “Why do you want to be a rapper?” Dustin says, “I like the songs that Nicki Minaj songs.”

It doesn’t take long before he begins showcasing his talent, (Dustin rapping) “I bees in the trap be bees in the trap I bees in the trap be bees in the trap.”

Dustin is a pretty cool kid with lots of personality.  He says he gets good grades in school and really enjoys math class.
Desperately searching for a family, Dustin says there’s only 3 things he wants from his future forever family, “That would take care of me, would feed me and not hurt me.”
