    He loves dogs, cats and birds, but if he could, Jacob would care for the entire animal kingdom.

    Jacob is a great kid. He’s fun, thoughtful and something of a philosopher caring about others and wanting to be cared for.

    His dream vacation even includes animals.

    “I want to go somewhere where all the animals in the world would be,” the 12-year-old said.

    Jacob is a fast swimmer and loves to draw.

    “He’s a wonderful, wonderful boy,” Kristin Kutch, his social worker said. “He’s very inquisitive, he wants to learn and he’s curious about the world which makes you want to teach him and learn with him and explore it with him.”

    Jacob said he hopes to one day become a veterinarian.

    “I like to talk a lot,” he said. “I like to do a lot of stuff you know like a happy mood.”

    He said his greatest wish would be to have a family with animals.

    “He has many talents,” Kutch said. “He just needs the right family to guide and give him support to become the person he wants to be. He’s the best and I can’t wait to see what he becomes.”
