“They Had No Obligation to Take Me In”

“I could easily just have continued living on the streets or being in the foster care system if it wasn’t for them.”  At the age of four, Ben Kastenbaum was homeless in Las Vegas with his family. When police discovered Ben and his older brother wandering in a casino, they detained the children and took them to an institution; there, the kids waited in vain for their mother to come and get them. Then one day a man with a “cool red car” came to visit. That man turned out to be the mother’s cousin Ray, who with his wife, Lori, arranged to adopt the boys and give them the home they’d never had. Ben tells his story to Catherine Hinrichsen from Seattle University.
