If the children in DHS aren't adopted, they will become adults without any long-term family connection. That's why NewsChannel 4 wants to help these children.
Shy? Not so much.
"How would you describe October?" Reporter Lacey Lett asked.
"Awesome," October replied.
October is a vivacious kid who loves the outdoors, especially when it comes to golf.
"I can hit a golf ball 300 yards and I'm only a 10 year old,” October said.
Even when he’s inside at his temporary DHS home, he’s studying the game.
"I like to learn how professional golfers how they get their hit to be exactly where they want it to be," October said.
But today, he’s becoming a motorcyclist at Main Event in Oklahoma City. No matter the activity, he’s doing it full throttle, whether it’s here or in the classroom.
"'Math, success making math which is on a computer, reading like in a book," October said.
And those are just a few of October’s biggest passions. Another? Finding a family.
"First off, I'd like a dad who likes to golf so me and him could go on the golf course and hit balls."
And sharing the kitchen with a mom who loves to bake.
"Cupcakes, cookies, cakes," October said.
It was easy to get this little man to talk. In fact, he’s been very vocal about his desire to find an adoptive home.
"When the conversation is over, he's taught you a thing or two because he's very articulate and speaks very well," his caregiver said.
And if it wasn’t obvious already, he’s got a knack to smack.
"What else do you like to do?” Lett asked.
“Um....chew gum,” October said laughing.
A big personality and a bright future to share with a new family.
