Last year, we introduced you to Mason, a sweet and generous boy looking for a family of his own.
Well this 11-year-old is still waiting for his family and hopes to find one soon.
Hoop Zone, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching life skills and basketball to youth, gave 11-year-old Mason a chance to work on his game.
Games of all sorts are right up Mason's alley. He'd like a family to join his team.
"A family that's nice, they're active with sports and stuff, and video games and stuff," Mason said. "I like playing football and basketball and baseball."
He's a team player, so we wanted to know what he’d request from a genie if he had three wishes. It's no surprise that giving was at the top of his list.
"Some people in Africa need food and shelter for survival, so I feel bad for them and I'd help them," he said. "I wish I had money to give to people.”
Adoption was a close second on his wish list. He's outgoing and friendly, and wants a family that can take care of him like an 11-year-old needs.
Mason’s generosity doesn't stop at wanting to help the less fortunate. He says he'd like to be a Marine when he grows up so he can help people.
