FAMILY FINDER: Help Joey find a family

FAMILY FINDER: Help Joey find a family

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - KOLD anchor Lydia Camarillo is helping children waiting to be adopted find their future family.

Today, we're featuring one teenager who's says he's hoping to find a family that will support his passions.

Joey is a fun and confident 14-year-old with a passion for sports.

"I'm very outgoing and I talk a lot so you have to get used to me talking all the time, " he said jokingly. "I love football and basketball and sometimes dodge ball but mostly football and basketball."

When he's not playing sports, Joey is quite the bookworm, saying that he enjoys biographies and anything that involves somebody's life like Michael Jordan.

Whatever he is doing though, he wants a family that is right by his side.

"I want a family that I can call my own and do something with. If I want to play a sport, I would love for them to go to every practice and every game and they cheer me on."

We feel that Joey deserves that and ask that if you or someone you know is thinking about adoption, to please share.
