A Place to Call Home: Jason goes to the Science Center

Looking for a way to escape the winter blues? Head indoors to the Science Center! Five on Your Side photojournalist Joe Eickmeier explores with one awesome 12-year-old!

ST. LOUIS — Most six-year-olds are enjoying school and making new friends. But when Jason was that age, he entered foster care through no fault of his own. 

For the last six years, he has lived without someone to call mom and dad. And now, more than ever, he's ready for a forever family. 

Jason loves everything about the outdoors. So, exploring the Science Center's "Grow" exhibit was the perfect playground for him. 

Jason's little wish is a zoo membership. If you would like to learn more about becoming part of Jason's life or granting his little wish, please call the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at 1-800-FOSTER3. 

Now is a great time to visit the Science Center. Their new guitar exhibit is open and runs through April 14. To learn more, visit slsc.org.
