There are two kinds of teachers in this world: those who say they don’t have favorites…and those who aren’t liars!
For Phoenix, AZ teacher Jodi Kacz, she didn’t even attempt to hide the fact that she had a favorite student. The 45-year-old woman has always wanted to have kids of her own, however, she couldn’t due to a heart condition.
Then, a young boy named Orlando walked into her class. In 2014, Orlando made the decision to take a reading intervention class voluntarily. He was a good student who struggled in some areas, but still kept his pace.
Kacz even recalls telling her husband that if there was one student she’d adopt, it would be Orlando. In fact, she did want to adopt him. Unable to have kids of their own, the couple always said they would be open to adoption and the star-student Kacz admired so dearly was a contender on that list.
It may have been destiny when Kacz found out that the child was in fact a child from foster care. Having no family of his own, he was in need of somebody who could take him in. When Kacz found this out, the pieces fell into place and now, two years later, the family has been official with a legal adoption.
