St. Petersburg, Florida - Every week the most amazing people across the Bay area make our Wednesday Child segments come aliveby taking the time to make a difference in a child's life.
This weeka young man named Kyletouched a Bay area mother's heart before he even met her. When we told Jamie Foster about a teen in need of a homeshe burst into tearsbecause she has a 13-year-old son and says she can't imagine what life must be like without a mom or dad.
Foster has been fishing all her life. She was more than happy toshow16-year-old Kyle how to reel in thebig one. She's the manager of the Sunshine Skyway Fishing Pier where they have 8,000 customers a week.
It's during this quiet peaceful fishing outingthat we learn more about the type of forever family Kyle is hoping for. Stability is critical.
Kyle is looking to snag parents who can appreciate the fact that he's self sufficientand likes to do things on his own.
Kyle says he loves the outdoors. He likes hunting and fishingand computers too. He can picture the type of mother he'd like. He says, "She's nice and she doesn't hound me."
And when it comes to dear old Dadhe needs to have a love and appreciation for the outdoors. Kyle adds,"I mean I've never hunted. This is really my first time fishing. You know I'd like to go hunting and all that and learn."
And we were there when Kyle caught his first fish. Hopefully the next timehis new parents will be there instead to capture the life long memories. But until thenKyle has all the gear he needs to keep on fishingall thanks to Jamie Foster.
