Wednesday’s Child: Wafiq

By Larry Kane
Produced by Timothy McLaughlin

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — “Creative” doesn’t even begin to describe Wafiq.  At just 14 years old, he taught himself to play the drums.

“I remember going to Guitar Center and I picked up a set of drum sticks.  I thought I knew a beat — it sounded good, though,” he said recently.

Wafiq’s social worker, Daniel Sianozecki, says Wafiq needs a permanent family who can help him reach his goals.

“Wafiq did mention that he was interested in producing music — that aspect of creating music — but also recording.”

More than anything, Wafiq says he wants a shoulder to lean on — someone who will listen.

Listen to what?

“Anything really, anything that’s on my mind.  I never really had something like that.”
