“Family is always important,” 10-year-old hoping to be adopted

NEWCASTLE, Okla. - 10-year-old Chris is energetic and fun, and knows how to be patient.

For fun, he likes to play The Legend of Zelda.

We sat down with Chris to find out about some of his favorite things, like his favorite subject in school.

"My favorite subjects are lunch!" he said. More specifically, "Pizza. Pizza pizza pizza pizza."

He's still thinking about what he wants to be when he grows up.

So for now, this little boy's future remains unclear. He's been in DHS custody since he was six years old.

"I want to be adopted so I can have a family," he said. "Family is always important."

He doesn't know how many times he's moved around, but knows it's been a lot.

Right now he's at a foster home, but that could change at any moment.

Chris would just like to settle down with a family to call his own, especially one that likes to travel to one of his dream destinations.

"A vacation on Hawaii,” Chris said.

A fun-loving, sweet child hoping for a place to call home.
