St. Petersburg, Florida - Every week the most amazing people across the Bay area make our Wednesday Child segments come alive by taking the time to make a difference in a child's life.
This week a young man named Kyle touched a Bay area mother's heart before he even met her. When we told Jamie Foster about a teen in need of a home she burst into tears because 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 to show 16-year-old Kyle how to reel in the big 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 outing that 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 sufficient and likes to do things on his own.
Kyle says he loves the outdoors. He likes hunting and fishing and 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 Dad he 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 time his new parents will be there instead to capture the life long memories. But until then Kyle has all the gear he needs to keep on fishing all thanks to Jamie Foster.
Foster gave him a hat, a fishing pole and a bait box of his own. Now all he needs are parents to take him. If you'd like to learn more about Kyle call Freddie Brinson at 813-901-3477.
