ArkLaTex Angels- Ja'Quez

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT , La -

More than 240 children in the state of Louisiana became available for adoption so far this year; 19 in Shreveport alone. All of them look for someone to adopt them, a forever home.

That includes Sunday's angel, Ja'Quez.

He is four years old and likes to be called jay. And is a bundle of energy.

KTBS3 caught up with him at In The Zone party spot to get to know him a little.

Jay likes to ride his bike and play outside. He said he like to play with toy trucks.

When asked what he likes to do with trucks, he answered: "Drive them!"

He's very smart and creative-- he makes up his own songs.

And while Jay seems to have landed in a great foster home that could turn into a forever home, there are so many other children that just want to find a family to call their own.

They sometimes have biological relatives that they visit with, but sometimes they don't," said Cynthia Wood with the Department of Children and Family Services. "And so they are virtually alone in this world  and social workers just don't make up that space."

At four year's old, Ja'Quez may not understand what he's already been through, but his love-life attitude will make it easy for him to later on.

There's dozens more ArkLaTex Angels just like Ja'Quez who are in need of a good, permanent home.

If you are interested in learning about those children, contact the Department of Children and Family Services at (318)676-7100 or visit adoptuskids.org to see children up for adoption across the nation.
