‘Give Me A Chance’: Adoptive Family Abandons Young LGBTQ+ Teen After 7 Years




A heartbroken Oklahoma teen is once again searching for a forever family after their adoptive parents abandoned them after discovering the child was queer.

Dax, 16, told Oklahoma City’s KFOR-TV their family “started not loving me anymore” — seven years after they adopted Dax through the foster care system.

“It was nice, but then they like – they started not loving me anymore for who I was, being LGBTQ,” Dax told News 4.



Dax, who loves school and raising chickens, now dreams of finding the perfect family.

“Probably a same-sex couple or someone who is very understanding of my situation,” Dax said.

“Just going places together, going on road trips, doing stuff together, going bowling and all the family stuff,” said Dax.

But most of all – Dax would like to find a family who loves them for who they are.

“Give me a chance,” Dax said. “I’m open-minded. I care about a lot of different kinds of people.”

Dax identifies with the pronouns they/them.
