"Here's a bunch of the famous people, we have of course Sam Bradford, you remember him? Yes."
Our Waiting Child, Christopher is a huge O-U fan, so NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert took him to the perfect place to visit: Boomer Town USA in the Farm Shopping Center.
Along with looking at all the neat memorabilia, the store made sure he left with OU football tickets, a jersey, cap... and an autographed football from Billy Simms. To top it off, Billy even called him personally while he was at the store!
"Christopher, Billy wants to talk to you. Hello? Christopher? Yeah. How you doing, this is Billy Simms. I'm doing good. Good, good, how old are you? 13."
Christopher is rather quiet and soft spoken, and a really good kid. And while he has heroes on the field, he needs them everyday in his personal life. He says he wants to go to OU and become a veterinarian... and permanent parents could certainly help him reach that goal. Right now, he makes mostly A's & B's at school. And, having a permanent loving home would mean the world to him.
"I'd feel more secure and at home. I'd actually feel like I have a home and like I'd have a family that won't leave."
If you have room in your home and love in your heart to help a child, Christopher is waiting for you.
