OKLAHOMA CITY - William is a New Year’s Eve baby who just turned 15-years-old.

William's caseworker says he is respectful to those around him and tends to be reserved.

However, he really enjoys having conversations with people and likes to keep himself busy.

"I really enjoy playing video games. I like to go out and play basketball with other kids in the neighborhood if I can," William said. "I don't like to sit with myself. I get really bored."

He also keeps himself entertained with his favorite subject in school.

"Well, I really enjoy science. It's, I don't know, I've always been good at science. Then my reading, I read a lot, so it comes natural," William said.

He loves adventure books like Percy Jackson, but also enjoys thrillers from James Patterson and Dean Koontz.

Even though he just celebrated his birthday, William says it was just another day in the group home with almost 24 other children.

"We don't do much. A normal day consists of waking up, hygiene, go to eat breakfast, go to school, get out, have a break and then go back to school, then go back to lunch and then have a pretty relaxed day from there," he said.

William was taken under the care of DHS last year.

"I get comfortable and then I'll have to move again and just never know when I'll be able to switch or stay in a spot for long," William said.

William says he wants a family who loves him, supports him and is near a place where he can swim.

"I don't know. It just seems like it would be really fun to have a family and interact with other people," William said.
