MTN News headed to Boulder to catch up with this month's "A Waiting Child."
Reporter Jacob Fuhrer found out how Hasten passes the time while he waits for a permanent family to find him. Like most 11 years old, he likes a variety of things -- music, drawing, and movies.
“I can’t wait to see the new infinity war. Where basically all the Avengers combine like Dr. Strange, Thor, Hulk,…" Hasten said.
Mainly it’s the fictional world that has his attention, “there’s this cat book I like to read. So it’s like five series in one series and I’m on the second series.”
The activities are a way to pass the time, but Hasten is ready to find a permanent family -- and he knows what he wants. “A nice and giving family. Creative family -- a book nerd," Hasten joked.
He has a long list of former homes and moves frequently, ‘I don’t get used to it at all, cause I’m know I’m moving in like a year,” Hasten said.
His hope is to find the family that will take him home so he doesn’t have to move on.

The rights of their parents have been terminated making the children available for adoption.
Either married couples or single adults who have an approved pre-placement evaluation or adoptive home study may adopt in the State of Montana.
