Meet Wesson – Musical teen seeks family to live in harmony

Posted

The room fills with laughter as Wesson cracks another joke. The thirteen-year-old has a magnetic personality and a wide smile that he likes to show often.

He’s at the Alice Cooper Teen Center where he’s working on his newest single. Wesson has big dreams of working in the music industry as a producer, songwriter, and rapper. Today he’s recording a song he wrote, one of hundreds his advocate says.

Wesson currently lives in a group home with nine other boys. His guardian at the home, Jay, says that the teen can be shy and unsure of himself unless he’s at the studio. “He is easily discouraged because he’s had a lot of let downs.” 

Like many children in foster care, Wesson’s relationship with his biological family is complicated, but he does want to stay in contact with his siblings. More than anything, he wants a family to love and cheer him on as he pursues his music career. In a moment of unabashed openness, Wesson says that he doesn’t understand how other kids can be disrespectful to their parents because he would love to have a family that gives him rules and boundaries.

Wesson’s perfect family would be active and always up for an adventure. When Wesson isn’t making music, he’s outdoors. He would also do well in a family that is open with their love and care for one another.
