Life isn't easy for kids without the guidance of a mom and dad. That's the case for Doyal a teenager with a lot of heart, but not a lot of direction.
A hard edge, but a soft interior, that's probably the best way to describe 14-year-old Doyal. He made the trip to Sistersville, first visiting the Wells Inn where he shared a lot about himself including his sense of style.
"I like black clothes and Converse shoes," says the teen sporting gelled hair, his high-top shoes, and black fish-net gloves.
He says his favorite pastimes include snowboarding, ski boarding, and listening to music. This 7th grader likes rock music and the rocker look; let's not forget about the piercings.
Doyal got to spend the day in Sisterville checking out the scenery from the historic hotel to the ferry. He says he is looking for a family with parents that are a bit laid back and not too strict. However, his social workers say he needs a family that can provide him unconditional love and understanding.
