    The Story

    “That day is still fresh in my memory” says SOS mom Raquel recalling the day she hold Sebastian in her arms for the first time. The twenty-day-old child bewitched her forever with his sparkling eyes. “He was so little and cute-as-can-be, and we all got concerned about his breathing problems” says the woman whose dedication, care and love helped him recover in a short time.

    Sebastian turned into a fun-loving and energetic boy, although sometimes his curiosity and endless energy put him in trouble with teachers and friends. Nevertheless, everything seemed to be working fine for him until he reached adolescence. The memories of a life without signs of his biological family showed up. A feeling of sadness, frustration and rage began to affect him. “One evening, while he was doing homework, he opened up to me. I told him that past cannot be changed, that sometimes we just need to learn from it and move on. I told him that his past did not define who he was”, says his SOS mom Raquel. The next morning, she came up with the idea to formally introduce him to sports. After evaluating some options, Sebastian gave taekwondo a chance.

    Now, he is a 16-year-old young man who embraces challenges with arms wide-open, and the positive effect of sports in his life can be easily seen. Old memories have been transformed into hard work, confidence, and love, three boosters he needs before every competition.

    Last May, Sebastian participated in a regional taekwondo championship. He went through to the qualifying series, but lost a fight during the play-offs. However, he hasn’t lost the spirit as he is driven to join the world taekwondo federation. “In the world of sports, things never get easier, they only get better”, he says with confidence.
