I was always told I had something special. I never really understood what that meant. All I knew is that I wanted a chance to make a life for myself that I never had. I wanted to be somebody and I was so infuriated with the hand the life dealt me, I was going to do it. I’ll show that Life! Well here I am almost 10 years after aging out of the foster care system and life has taught me a thing or two, but I’m doing exactly what I said I was going to do. I’ve finished college, pursuing a Master’s Degree, am a Married homeowner with a 2 year old, running a non-profit organization I started 5 years ago and developing a consulting firm I started this year. Many will say that I’ve more than overcome I’ve surpassed what most expect of former foster youth. But I will tell you, I have a long way to go and it wasn’t easy getting here. This Blog is all about Life, Love and Family AFTER Foster Care because so many of us don’t believe it exists or that we can thrive in it and I’m here to tell you – that it does and you can.
