He is a boy with good manners, a sense of humor, and get this his favorite food is one of my favorites too- chocolate. But this 11-year-old has a simple wish list for something money can't buy- a family who can give him unconditional love.

When I arrived at North Bend State Park Sebastian asked if he could help me carry my equipment, made sure we went around the putt-putt course in order, and wouldn't take his turn until the lady went first.

This 11-year-old hasn't played miniature golf in awhile but you couldn't tell.

He's a hard worker and that's part of the reason why this soon to be sixth grader's favorite subject is math. "Because I like the challenge," said Sebastian.

Just like a math problem one hole was a bit tricky but he didn't give up until he gave it his best shot. "Ahh so close but yet so far," said Sebastian.

He has some vision problems but he doesn't let that get in his way. He loves video games, jewelry, and animals of all kinds.

"I love sharks, dolphins. I'm an animal lover." But this animal lover says he's not used to being in the spotlight.

"It's always been about my brothers and sisters," he said.

Sebastion said he helped take care of his siblings and his older sister helped take care of him. Now Sebastian isn't afraid to go after what he wants- a forever family.

"I'm looking for a nice, kind (family), doesn't get mad very easily (and) doesn't yell that much."

Sebastian would love to have a family to do something many do together each weekend- eating out.

He says all in all what they do together is not as important as having caring, compassionate, and dedicated parents.

"It don't matter, I just like people who love me," he said.

He's a team player waiting on the sidelines to be part of a family's team.
