Justin: 30 Days of Hope

The teen loves animals and would like to live in the country

There are more than 600 children who are ready for adoption in Virginia. They are ready to find a permanent and loving forever family. 10 News is profiling one child who needs a home every day at 6 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. in 30 Days of Hope. The children are all ages and races and were put into foster care due to no fault of their own. 2021 marks the fifth year 10 News is doing this series.

Meet Justin!

Meet Justin, a teenager with an old soul who is always ready for a good laugh, especially when it’s with others!

Justin would like a family who enjoys playing video games, watching movies and TV shows (”Smallville” is his favorite!) as well as listening to music.

Basketball is his absolute favorite sport over football and he can shoot a 3-pointer.

Justin has a good sense of humor and enjoys outings.

He is thrifty with his money and is careful with what he has, but his dream car is a yellow Lamborghini.

Batman is his absolute favorite superhero and says if he could change anything in the world, there would be no littering.

He is an animal lover and dreams of having pets of his own.

Though he loves to have fun, Justin also has a sensitive side, being very attuned to others and things that are going on around him.

He is looking for a family with pets, a mom and a dad, and older siblings.

“Playing with them, playing video games, go out shopping,” is what Justin says he looks forward to.

Justin wants to live in the country.
