This Week's Wednesday's Child: Meet John


Please meet John (7-2002). John likes to fish, play ball, and he enjoys spending time with animals. John likes to watch the news and weather. John also enjoys watching basketball. John wants people to know that he is a little shy, and a good kid. John likes to play race car video games and listen to music such as rap and country. John spends some of his free time playing board games, including Connect 4, and Uno. John enjoys working puzzles, too. John is described as a great kid who is easy to get along with and is easily redirected when needed. John is inquisitive and asks a lot of questions. John enjoys going to church and other outings. Some of John’s favorite foods are burgers, pepperoni pizza, and hot wings. Don’t ask John to eat Spinach or Brussels Sprouts, because he does not enjoy those foods! John loves to collect any kind of office supplies and watches. John is excited and looking forward to meeting his forever family and being adopted so that he will have a family to call his own.

Adoptive Families Celebrate at Kentucky Kingdom


More than 600 adopted children and families enjoyed a perfect day at Kentucky Kingdom on Sunday, August 2. This annual Family Fun Day is made possible by your generous donations and offers families an opportunity to celebrate their common tie -- expanding their family through adoption. The families joined together for a picnic lunch in the pavilion and shared stories of hope and true love. WLKY's Liz Everman accepted a special proclamation and plaque from the mayor's office for her years of service and commitment to raising awareness about adoption of special needs children. Between the sunshine, the rides, the laughter, and the dedication of families willing to make the ultimate commitment, it was a day to remember.
