I've written about the Reality of Aging Out of the foster care system in a previous post. For children without a permanent family, the statistics associated with life after foster care are grim. There are not adequate resources in place to help successfully equip the thousands of teens who end up on their own each year.
Everyone needs an ally in their life. Someone to lean on, cry with, and to help them dream as they head into adulthood.
This week, the Heart Gallery of Alabama child is Acacia. She's beautiful, intelligent, and hoping for a forever family and a teenage girl. She's facing some tough odds simply because of her age.
But I believe she is the perfect fit for a family. Just ONE family. That's all it will take to provide her with security and a place to call home.
Meet Acacia. . .
