Grant Me Hope: 12-year-old Jason hopes to be adopted

Every Monday here on WXXV25 we feature a child from Mississippi hoping to get adopted. Today you will meet 12-year-old Jason. Jason said to know he is loved and understood would be amazing.

“My name is Jason, I’m 12. What adoption means to me? It means a second chance to have a permanent family. Someone that supports you, someone that takes care of you. My hobbies are playing basketball and I also like to go four wheeling.”

“I’ve been playing with Lego’s since I was like three and it just became a habit. If I could learn to do anything it is how to build a Lego car because they seem like so neat.”

“What would I change about the world? Is… well… negativity. That’s like what I would change about the world. Like bullying and all that, it’s just… it’s just wrong. The world would be a lot more peaceful if the world was changed like that. How would I change? Well by teaching others how much it hurts to be bullied.”

“The kind of friend I am is one that’s supportive and one that shares my stuff. I would like to be adopted by a family that’s loving and forgiving. One that’s supportive, gets me, and also lets me be me!”

“Thanks for giving me a chance to share.”
