Forever Families: David

Several years ago a little boy was featured on a "Forever Families" segment. Now he's 14-years-old and still looking for his forever family.

Like most teenagers, David loves cars. Specifically, trucks.

"I want to be a mechanic," said David.

He hopes to go to technical college and make a career out of his passion for fixing things.

David's wisdom, far exceeds his age.

"Don't judge a person by what they do or look like. Choose them by their actions and personality," said David.

Friends describe David as funny, outgoing and nice but at Dave & Buster's in Austin, we got to see another side of David.

Grateful.

He won a prize just to give to his foster mom Miss Irma. CBS Austin asked David who inspires him the most.

"My foster mom and foster dad Ricky," he said. "Miss Irma if she says something, she does it. Mr. Ricky, he's a semi-truck driver and he knows how to do a lot of things," said David.

David dreams of a forever family. Maybe living on a ranch with lots of trucks for him to fix. It's a dream he will never give up on.

"I think about a family that always just wanted a boy," said David.

"You know that family is out there somewhere," said Lindsay Liepman.
