  • I am so proud of my baby sister’s bravery to share her experience to help and bless others. God can overcome any trial the world places upon us. Thank you.

    After listening to Nicole’s story I can relate to everything she said. Although my journey in foster care was different and during the 60’s and 70’s I remembered not being wanted by foster families also.
    I went into foster care at about a year old along with my five siblings, we were split up in several different homes. I didn’t know I had older siblings until I was about four and didn’t realize my foster parents weren’t my parents until about the same time. It’s a difficult journey for children and I am so happy you have started this organization. It was great to hear Nicole’s story.
