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.
