OKLAHOMA - The first word that comes to mind when you think about Jeremy is adorable.

The 8-year-old didn't need a lot to entertain him.

As you're about to see, he's just a happy carefree boy.

"Whoa! It's a carpenter ant," Jeremy said. "Whoa! Come, and look!"

The Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History is one of Jeremy's favorite places to go.

He's been several times but, on this day, it was like he was seeing it for the first time.

"Can you find the largest fish in Oklahoma displayed in the gallery? Hint: Look up."

After some exploring, we finally spotted a big fish in the exhibit.

Jeremy is already a great reader.

He was able to get through some tough sentences in the exhibits.

"Ancient mammals, such as long-necked camels and saber-toothed cats,” Jeremy read.

Jeremy went into DHS custody when he was just a year old.

"What do you like to do for fun?” Lacey Lett asked.

“Play video games,” Jeremy responded.

“What else?” Lett asked.

“That's it," Jeremy responded.

The little boy enjoys playing Call of Duty and Battlefield.

He also loves his chocolate lab puppy at his foster home.

"It's a girl, and her name is Little Anne. Whenever she gets older, she'll have babies."

Sausage pizza is this little guy's favorite food just like some of his favorite superheroes, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

"Leonardo, because he has swords," Jeremy said.

"What do you want to be when you grow up?" Lett asked.

"A husband," Jeremy said.

A true romantic who wants a loving relationship when he grows up.

He'd also like to have a loving family.

"You said your 'mom,' so you have a foster mom?" Lett asked.


"How long have you been there?"

"For a really long time,” Jeremy said.

He's hoping his future family will give him another sibling.

"I already had brothers, and now I want a sister."

Until that happens, he's taking life's challenges in stride and exploring all that it has to offer.
