AUGUSTA, Georgia (WRDW / WAGT) – Thousands of children in Georgia do not have families of their own.
News 12 has partnered with Grant Me Hope, a nonprofit, which is working to find homes for older children in the care system. Her focus is on finding a home for older children in the care system.
Today we would like to introduce you to Terrion who likes board games, sports and math.
“My name is Terrion and I am 11 years old. I’ve been in the care system for most of my life. I’ve been with four parents since I can remember, ”he said.
At school he says his favorite subject is math. “I’m really good at math. It’s easy. That’s what I like most about it, it’s easy. I think it’s important to get good grades. If you work harder for it, it will be appreciated more. “
Outside of school, Terrion enjoys playing board games in his spare time.
“I like ‘Sorry!’ and I probably like ‘Monopoly’ because it just feels good to keep winning games. It’s probably easy, that’s why, ”he said.
Terrion is a superhero fan and says Ironman is his favorite.
“My favorite superhero would be Iron Man and the reason is because he’s smarter than any other superhero and he builds things like robots and basically saved the universe from Thanos,” he said.
He dreams of traveling and meeting new people.
“I want to travel a lot. When you see new people with different accents and things like that, you can learn other things, ”he said.
Terrion is looking for a forever home that will allow him to have a relationship with his brother.
“We are very close, we get along like most brothers. He’s been supporting for a couple of years. I live near him right now, so I don’t even know what it feels like not to live near him, ”he said.
