Foster Child Still Has Birthday Card- 20 Years Later..

Foster Child Still Has Birthday Card- 20 Years Later..

Wow. This is just something I had to blog about. It may be a little selfish, but that’s ok. I am feeling a little selfish today anyway….lol.

About 20 years ago, I was a foster parent in a group home for teen girls. About 15 minutes ago, one of them messaged me with this picture of a birthday card, a card I gave her when she lived with me. She was about 14 then, and is married and a caregiver herself today.

If that’s not proof that adults can make a lasting impression than I do not know what is. I love it.

Social Worker- Mental Health, Addictions, and Behavioral health- Leadership Educator-, Juvenile Justice. A variety of coaching. I have a great desire to help others make it through times that I myself have had to navigate. I understand the process, the pain,and the support needed. I, and the rest of my team all have both the formal education to coach others but more importantly we also have the life experience which allows us to relate to all the phases and hurdles that come with recovering from issues like depression, addiction, domestic violence, spiritual confusion, and much more. I feel that the combination of formal training and life experience allows us to meet those we help every point of need- in a real way.
