A 12-year-old boy who’s been in the foster care system in Texas for many years says he still has faith that God will provide a family for him.

Jonah, whose last name was not given, was featured on WFAA’s long-running segment called “Wednesday’s Child.”

“I have a desire to have knowledge and wisdom. The golden rule is to treat somebody the way you want to be treated, and that’s what I do or at least what I try to do the most,” he said in the sit-down interview with ABC’s Dallas affiliate.

Jonah believes God has carried him through the numerous hardships he’s endured in his young life.

“He’s brought me through many, many things. As far as abuse before I came into CPS. He’s brought me through a lot. Just a lot overall,” he said.

“Waking me up this morning, you know what I mean? Starting me on my way. I’m in my right mind. I know who I am and I’m proud of being the person who I am,” Jonah continued.

Having been in the foster care system for four years now, Jonah is trusting in the Lord to provide a family that will adopt him.

“[The] reason why I want to be adopted is because I know there’s a family out there that fits me in the best possible way that they can.”
