TACOMA, Washington -

If you love sports and cars, this week's Wednesday's Child might fit right into your family. 14 year old Antonio is waiting for a family to adopt him

Antonio is a huge Denver Broncos fan. He knows Payton Manning's stats.

"He's thrown 23 touchdowns in the first seven games -- an NFL record,” Antonio said. “He set an NFL record to start the season with 19 touchdowns without an interception."

Antonio would be in heaven if he had an adoptive family who would be excited about sports too. He wants a permanent home.

"So I have a stable place to live, because right now I'm just living for the now if you're in a foster home,” Antonio said. “If you're not in a foster home you can look toward the future."

As far as the future is concerned, Antonio has high hopes.

"I want to play professional sports but if that doesn't work out I'll be a lawyer or a dentist or something," Antonio said.

A family that has structure, clear rules and expectations and gives Antonio some well deserved love and one on one attention is just what he needs to feel secure and wanted.
