As soon as we met at the Clay Center in Charleston this fun-loving 9-year-old was ready to show us around.

"Because I've been here at least 300 times or so," said Dillon.

It was my first time there and Dillon was so willing to take me by the hand and show me the ropes.

Dillon said, "it's still got some nice gadgets."

His bright curious mind is into anything and everything about science.

He dove into seeing what his face would look like in this exhibit, tried his hand at this harp, and wasn't afraid to get wet!

So with all the activities, it was hard for Dillon to sit down for an interview because he wanted to try it all.

"Hey can I get off of here I'm bored," said Dillon.

This fourth grader isn't afraid to delve into something new but now he's looking for something permanent- a forever home.

"We are looking for a family that has no children or at least children that are older than Dillon. He does much better in a one-on-one situation," said Jean Faulkner, an adoption specialist.

Dillon has some special needs but he's easygoing about almost everything!

"I like to play almost anything," said Dillon and about food "almost anything," he said.

His bright brown eyes and big smile radiate his energy for life and for people.

Even though they live apart, he stays in touch with his brothers and sister.

"He wants to continue that. It's very important to him and to his siblings," said Faulkner.

With a family he hopes to "go to stores sometimes and go to the mall a little bit," he said.

He'd like to eat at the mall together too.

Faulkner said "he would make a great addition to someone's family."

An addition who's energy is so contagious, he could make you feel like a kid again.
