Wednesday’s Child: Graham

Wednesday's Child

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Graham is an insightful teenager who is looking for his forever family.

At 14 years old, he knows what he wants to be when he grows up, and it has everything to do with his passion for cars.

“I want to be an auto mechanic,” he said. “If that doesn’t work out, I want to be a chef.”

Graham’s love of cars fuels his Matchbox collection and his desire to get behind the wheel of his favorite: a Dodge Charger.

The seventh-grader is described as selfless, kind and self-aware.

“He’s so self-aware about what he’s good at and what he needs to work on,” said social worker Sarah Strachan.

Graham added that he’s also sweet and caring.

Graham enjoys math, gardening and watching football. He is driven to become the best he can be.
