Adoption workers tell us one of the toughest things to watch is a foster child age out of the system, never to find a place to call home.
But that's what could happen to 17-year old Tomas. Yet, all those who know Tomas insist that whoever takes him home will be the one blessed.
Tomas is a typical teenager, and he loves sports, especially basketball. So we arranged for him to meet former NBA star Corliss Williamson, who now coaches the UCA basketball team.
"Being a coach and player, I've had the opportunity to see plenty of kids from different backgrounds," says Williamson. "You hate to see it when they don't have that steady environment, of parents at home."
Yet that is a spot-on description of Tomas' life. He has no parents, no home, no family to care for or love him. In fact, he never really knows where he'll be next.
"Foster families," he says. "Facilities, anything they can find."
