Wednesday's Child is a part of the Dave Thomas Foundation's national campaign to increase adoptions of children in foster care. Each Wednesday (and again on Sunday mornings), a child in foster care who is waiting for a loving, adoptive home is profiled during the evening news on WNBC 4.
14-year-old Fazhjohn is swift on both the football field and basketball court. However, this wide receiver also enjoys taking his time conquering the chess board. Although he can be shy during a first encounter, he warms up easily once he becomes comfortable.
This 9th grader is continuing to make great strides completing his class assignments. Fazhjohn benefits most from one-on-one instruction.
An ideal family for Fazhjohn is one that can provide a loving home full of activities, structure and laughs.

About Wednesday's Child
Wednesday's Child is hosted by NBC meteorologist Janice Huff, who encourages viewers to call the ACS Parent Recruitment Hotline at 212-676-WISH to learn more about the adoption process.
Wednesday’s Child is an award-winning program began in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area in 1992 which features children who are waiting in foster care to be adopted and success stories of families who have adopted from foster care. Because of its phenomenal success, the program was expanded to other cities around the country. In April 1999 Wednesday's Child started in New York City as a collaboration between WNBC 4 and Freddie Mac Foundation. Since January 1, 2014 the Dave Thomas Foundation has sponsored Wednesday’s Child. For more information, visit the Dave Thomas Foundation website at www.davethomasfoundation.org
