(WTNH) - Within minutes of meeting 11-year old Scott during his tour of the New Britain Youth Museum at Hungerford Park, it was clear he's a little kid with a big heart.
The other thing we learned: he loves animals -- knows a lot about them -- and wants to learn even more. It's one of the things those who know Scott, love about him.
"He's always fun to talk to. He always has an interesting spin on whatever you're talking about. He knows details from so many things. So if you talk about animals, take him to any new place, he can come out with so many stories -- things he's learned -- he has so much information stored in his brain," said Stephanie Carter, Scott's social worker.
So, we know he loves animals, and likes to learn, but he's also into science fiction, and playing Wii games. To break it down to just two words: he's talkative and playful,
"Video games, watching TV. Sometimes if there are dogs in the house, I like playing with them, cuddling with them, lying down, I do like sleeping with them at night," Scott said.
Scott's social workers say he's had a difficult life, and needs a family with two parents and no other children, or older children, and of course, patience and understanding.
"Scott really wants to be in a family and he really wants to have relationships with parents. He really wants to be in a home with animals and he really wants that stability of being in a family. And that's something that only a family can give him," Carter said.
