Teenager Asks Teacher To Adopt Him, And She Does
November 22, 2017
A Texas teenager who has spent years in foster care has a forever home just in time for the holidays after being adopted by his former teacher.
Anthony, 16, says he did not think he ever wanted to be adopted, until he met Bennie Berry.
He first met Berry last November when she was his English teacher. Now she is a first-time mom after Anthony asked her to adopt him.
Berry told KBMT News that at first she thought Anthony was joking when he brought it up, telling her he wanted to show her a website.
She told Anthony, "Finish your assignment and then you can show me the website. Then later I found out that it was really an option to adopt him, so we pushed forward."
The adoption became official last week and they could not be happier. Berry told ABC News, "I have a son. I'm more than elated. I have a son for the rest of my life."
