A 16-year-old teenager was given a forever family when he asked his high school teacher to adopt him.
Anthony Berry had been in the foster care system since 2010, when he met his English teacher, Bennie Berry at Pathways Learning Center in Beaumont, Texas last November. While Anthony had previously said he never wanted to be adopted, it only took three months from the pair's initial meeting for him to ask her to become his mother.
According to ABC, Bennie thought Anthony was joking around when he asked her to look at a website. She told him she'd only see it when he finished his work.
"Finish your assignment and then you can show me the website," Bennie recalled telling future son. "Then later I found out that it was really an option to adopt him, so we pushed forward."
