A one-on-one basketball lesson with former University of Texas basketball player Bill Wendlandt at the nonprofit HoopZone
kept 16-year-old Isaiah on his toes.
Aside from sports, Isaiah likes to have fun being outside.
"Camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, shooting, four-wheeling, mudding--pretty much anything that's outdoors," he said.
Isaiah says “mudding” is a lot messier than basketball.
"It's where you get a 4-wheeler and you drive through the mud as fast as you can, and it sprays all over you,” he said.
Isaiah isn't afraid to get a little dirty if it means having fun. At 16, he's looking for a family to help him through this crucial time in his life where teens are making big decisions about college, career and life after high school.
"At least I'd have somebody to help me through hard choices,” Isaiah said.
He has an open mind about family. He says he hasn't thought too much about the type of family he'd want, but does know he wants dependable parents who won't abandon him, and will be there for him when he needs them most.
"At least I know where my parents are 24-7, they're either at home or at work when I'm at school," Isaiah said.
Adoption will give Isaiah security in knowing his family isn't leaving, and that they've got his back.
"Family can help each other to overcome things," he said.
Isaiah says he loves animals and ROTC. He would like to be a Marine when he grows up.
