When it comes to adoption, it’s more than just newborns who need new homes. There are hundreds of foster children in Central Texas—including 13-year-old Chaz—who are still waiting to find their forever families.
The thought of breaking a board was daunting for Chaz. After all, it was his first time trying martial arts, but the pros at the Academy of Martial Arts had it covered.
First, he took some pointers from Master Moen and learned some of the basics of Tae-Kwon-Do.
In fact, Chaz loves to learn and loves school.
"It's not only that you get to see your friends, but you get to learn things,” he said. “Without learning things, you won't get nowhere, so it's better to have fun in school, then when you get out of school, you can get a job and hang out with your friends.”
At just 13, Chaz has a good head on his shoulders and he knows what he wants out of life. At the top of his list is a family.
"I want to be adopted because I think I should be with a family that cares and I should be happy,” Chaz said.
He'd like to have a nice family and siblings.
"If they're little, I can teach them how to play sports and stuff, how to read," Chaz said.
