Our Waiting Child, Zachary, who likes to be called Zach, was thrilled with his first lesson in martial arts.  Instructor Chris Norman, at Apollo's Karate in south Tulsa, explained how it helps you learn respect and self control. NewsChannel 8's Carole Lambert says Zach seemed to be a natural, catching on very quickly. He feels it could teach him so much.

"If I stayed in martial arts, I think it would really help me with my school work.  It would teach me responsibility and discipline to be able to work on my school work."

Zach is 13 and is in the 6th grade.  He scores well on state required testing, but his day to day grades in school could improve.  He has the potential and permanent parents could make a world of difference to give him stability, encouragement and support. In addition, they'd have a fun, outgoing son who likes to be involved in activities.  He's in Boy Scouts, attends church... and if you fish... well, that's a real plus!

"Total weighed in at about five pounds for the trout, one weighed a pound, it was a big trout. I wish I'd gotten that on video.. It was cool."

Zach wants to be adopted.. He'd like to have both a mom and dad.  This waiting child wants to know that there's someone there for him everyday... parents who care.. and a place he can always call home.
                

If you would like more information on Zachary and the DHS adoption program, call child welfare.  The number is 918-581-2033.
