PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — At 14, Jasper has an unusual career ambition:

(Jasper:) “An R.C. specialist.”

(Larry Kane:) “What does that mean?”

(Jasper:) “It means making these remote controlled mini-vehicles and controlling them.”

His backup career? A chef. He tells Gloria Hochman, of the National Adoption Center in Philadelphia, about his favorite food to make:

(Jasper:) “Breakfast.”

(Hochman:) “Breakfast? What do you like to make?”

(Jasper:) “Bacon and eggs and… more bacon.”

With so many interests, Hochman says, Jasper needs the support of a loving, permanent family.

“He wants a family that will help him realize his ambitions,” she tells Wednesday’s Child. “He is fourteen — just at the point where we don’t want him to give up hope of finding a family.”

For more information about adopting Jasper or any other “Wednesday’s Child,” go to the National Adoption Center’s web site,, or call 215-735-9988.
