Bristol, Conn. (WTNH) - We taped this week's Wednesday's Child at a place that's all about fun - Lake Compounce.
It's a family theme park in Bristol, and the only way it could be any better for Spencer and his younger brother Kenny is if they were here with a family.
A family of their own.
"I think that they would best fit into a family that has older children, perhaps older boys in the family that Kenny and Spencer could look up to," said Sarah Lucia, DCF social worker. "Certainly a family with a mother and a father would be the best fit for them."
And from the sounds of it., the boys would fit into a family pretty easily. They're both fun-loving and willing to try almost anything.
Kenny, who's five years younger than Spencer, loves the amusement park, but he also loves everyday things, like reading, drawing, sports and just spending time together.
And he's a straight shooter.
"He is up front with you," Lucia said. "He will let you know how it is, how he's feeling, and I think that that's certainly a positive trait for a kid who's 8."
Spencer is incredibly sweet and happy. He was born with Cerebral Palsy, so his speech sometimes can be difficult to understand.
But his affectionate gestures, which I'm told are a big part of who Spencer is, leave no doubt about how he feels.
"He is very happy, very friendly, he's an outgoing kid," Lucia said. "He loves to be helpful around the house and at school."
And with the love and support of a nurturing family, Spencer and Kenny are hoping to soar a lot higher.
