Waiting Child Dathan

Posted: Updated:

NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert  arranged for waiting child Dathan to have a great experience testing his athletic skills.  They went to JP Archery in Sapulpa, where co-owner David Nance gave Dathan some excellent instruction.  It worked, and Dathan was hitting the bull's eye in no time.  At 12 years old, Dathan's in great shape and loves being active.  This 6th grader says P-E is one of his favorite classes.

And, with his outgoing personality, Dathan enjoys having many friends.  He knows you have to treat friends right.

"Pay attention, be nice to them and have fun."

Dathan is really looking forward to being adopted.  His DHS case worker says a permanent mom and dad could  have a big impact on helping him reach his full potential.  And, if they have Native American heritage, that's a plus.  Dathan is Muscogee Creek Indian.  He explained what Muscogee Creek means.

"Muscogee is the same as creek, but it's in creek.. Creek means muscogee, but it's in English."

Dathan is a kid who has his whole life ahead of him.  But, right now, he needs a place to call home and people who he can trust and love.  He has a whole list of things he'd like to do with a forever family.   

"I would like one that likes to horse back ride, archery, fishing,  hunting." 

If you would like to find out more about Dathan and the DHS adoption program, call child welfare.  The number is 918-581-2033.
