“I really don’t have a home,” 11-year-old says he can’t wait to be adopted

OKLAHOMA CITY - Sterling is 11-years-old and loves riding his bike and playing video games.

Although he is staying in a group home right now, Sterling says he can't wait to be adopted.

"It doesn't really matter. What I'd really like is one sister, a mom and a dad,” Sterling said.

He says he wants to have an older sister who can protect and take care of him when his parents are away from home.

He also would like a way to escape reality in his room.

"A PS4 in my room and a TV and to bring all of my toys,” Sterling said.

Sterling describes himself as a happy kid with a big appetite.

"I just like food,” Sterling said. "Pizza, pizza pockets, spaghetti."

He says those foods are a real treat, especially while going from one foster home to the next.

"Just moving around every day pretty much," he said.

Sadly, the constant moving has been a part of Sterling's life for six years now.

"Are you ready to find a permanent home?" Lett asked.

"Yes. I can't wait," he said. "Because I really don't have a home. Because I really miss my real family. I just want a home so someone can take care of me."

At the time we interview children for these segments, they are available for adoption, but every single day DHS is working to find homes for these kids.  So, just remember - even once Sterling finds a family, there are so many just like him waiting for 'a place to call home'.
