This is a quote from a former foster child. No one truly knows their pain, their story, their fears…Take time today and consider being a mentor for a foster child. YOU can make a difference. It just takes ONE!
“The placements did not work because in my heart I felt alone but in my mind I felt grown….The only problem in the home was me. There I was almost thirteen and hated the world. I could not trust anyone. I didn’t want to trust anyone. How could I trust someone? I had to protect myself from hurt. The only way I could do that was to guard my heart….I messed up four homes because of this.” Flower Girl, Age 18
