Update: ‘Tank’s Good News’ Community Has Raised Over $50,000 For Boy Searching For Family To Adopt Him

Tank Sinatra has organized a GoFundMe to raise money for Haven so he can start adulthood with firm ground under his feet. You can donate whatever you feel comfortable with HERE.

Haven is a 17-year-old boy from Oklahoma. He likes Minecraft, he’s an active Cadet in Army JROTC, and he dreams of a military career, “to be a part of something bigger than myself,” he told Oklahoma City news station KFOR. Haven doesn’t have a family. He’s been in the custody of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services and foster care since he was 12 years-old, and he currently lives in a shelter with four other kids.

“It gets old sometimes,” Haven told KFOR of his life in the shelter. When Haven turns 18 in October, he’ll age out of the foster care system. What he wants more than anything is to find a family before it’s too late.

KFOR brought Haven on a tour of an Army National Guard facility for a segment that aired in March and the teen got to sit in a humvee, sample MREs, and learn more about serving in the National Guard. He also got to open up about his desire to find a family willing to adopt him before he turns 18 this Fall.

Family is important, according to Haven, “So you can have someone to help you, like be there for you if you need help—not just going into it all blind because that’s how you get into drugs and bad stuff like that.”

A reporter asked Haven what kind of family he’d like to be adopted into. “Anyone that will take me,” he said. “I don’t really care as long as it’s a family that will show love for me and be there for me.”

If you’d like more information on adopting Haven you can contact the Oklahoma Department of Human Services and if you’d like to donate to help get him a solid start on adulthood, Tank Sinatra has organized a GoFundMe for Haven.
