Not everyone can adopt, but everyone can do something!
Imagine you are a foster child. You are scared, confused, suffering from severe neglect, abuse or trauma. Removed quickly from your home with little to nothing but the clothes on your back, you find yourself living in a strangers home. Everything familiar is gone. Your family, friends, neighbors and sometimes even your siblings.
You are placed in your grade level at school. You may not know how to read or even write anything more than your name. You wake up each day placing one foot in front of the other as you try to move forward while feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders. You suffer in silence. Unaware of whom to trust and how to ask for the help you desperately need.
