TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Tonight we introduce you to our Wednesday’s Child, Quentin. As Lori Hutchinson reports, he’d love to take a swing at life with a loving, adoptive family.

“I’ve played only once, mini golf. That was when I was really little.”

15-year-old Quentin is ready to take his best shot at Sports Center, just west of 10th and Wanamaker. He’s a good kid, who loves to be active, whether at home or school. During his free time, Quentin is a builder.

“I’m usually like a Lego person I like to build stuff. Anything I can find.”

During school time, Quentin is a numbers guy.

“Yes, love high school. I love math. I want to be a pilot fighter pilot because I actually flew in a helicopter. That’s the main reason.”

Quentin has some lofty goals for the future, and that includes becoming part of a forever family. This high school sophomore would love to get the ball rolling with active parents. Who like to do stuff.

“Anything. I mean basically I’m in foster care so I can’t do much.”

Besides an active family, he’d like someone who will love and care for him. For Quentin, adoption is pretty simple.

“Basically just a normal household. Not too many kids but a couple, gotta have a pet. I love dogs and cats.”
