(FOX 11) - Back in 2012, "Dancing with the Stars" was a thing and Jonathan, 14 years old at the time was on Wednesday's Child, searching for a forever family.
With his most prized possession in hand (a little boom box of music), Jonathan danced and stepped into our hearts. While a long journey, eventually, he two-stepped into the hearts of his adoptive family.
Thanks to AB 12, a relatively new law that permits public child welfare agencies to support foster youth until their 21st birthday, Jonathan's adoption was finalized just months before he turned 21. Tune in to Wednesday's Child to hear about his journey in finding a forever family and then call to learn more about adoption at 1-866-921-ADOPT (2367).
