A Place to Call Home: Animal loving boy seeks forever home


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It takes a lot of courage and a lot of patience to adopt a state foster child, but any adoptive parent will tell you the rewards are immeasurable.

Through THV11's partnership with the Arkansas Department of Human Services, we meet Tyler, who hopes someone out there sees his story and is brave enough to bring him home.

"How ya doin?" Tyler asked, as he greeted the Little Rock Zoo penguins. The 8-year-old watched closely and smiled as they swam and floated inside the Penguin Pointe exhibit.

Tyler is a typical third-grader, curious and filled with adventure.

"He loves to play on his iPad," his adoption specialist Monica Spencer said. "And he loves to eat."

"Okra, green beans, macaroni," Tyler shared.

Spencer also said he loves to run around and play, and he loves animals.

New way to insta-shop and sell clothing


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Social media has changed the way we interact. Now, it's changing the way we shop.


Fringe Clothing
in the Little Rock River Market is one of the first companies to jump on the digital and social wave.

"Every girl wants to open their own boutique," said owner Kendall Sandifer, who started crafting her dream less than a year ago.

"Can I do it? Will I succeed? And you kinda start psyching yourself out, but I had a little cheerleader on the side," said Kendall.

She had her co-owner and husband Blake, encouraging her along the way to find new ways to make their brand unique.

That innovative idea is called "Soldsie."

"It's exactly what a clothing store needs," said Kendall.

Do your children have food allergies? Look for teal pumpkins this Halloween


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – While the traditional orange pumpkin during Halloween is immediately synonymous with the holiday and the time honored frenzy of children going door-to-door for candy and treats, a new pumpkin color may become just as notable.

The family that owns Dempsey Bakery in Little Rock knows how important it is to know the ingredients in each and every treat you consume—especially if you have a food allergy. Know what goes into food is mandatory for Paula Dempsey's family.

"[Of] Two of my grandchildren--my granddaughter, Allie, is gluten, dairy, egg, soy, nut," she listed.

Allie is allergic to all of these ingredients, and she confirmed that Halloween is one of the hardest days is celebrate.

"The candy looks really good and lots of people are eating it like on the street, and I'm just like 'No fair,'" she shared.
