• Forever Family: Ian's story

    By: Karlyn McKell


    Ian is a fun-loving teenager who is searching for his forever family. He uses art and music as a creative release to help him cope.  As a child growing up in the foster care system, Ian has had to go through a lot, so when he grows up he wants to help other children overcome their obstacles.


    “I want to be a nurse practitioner for a pediatrician,” Ian said. “As I started growing up I saw my struggles as a child and I think being a nurse practitioner all ties in together to reach my goal.”  


    When Action News Jax anchor Tenikka Hughes asked Ian what he’s looking for in a forever family, he said it doesn't matter if they are rich or poor. All he wants is to feel the connection.
