I am very scared about my future. I am 14 and I only have 4 years before I am 18 years old. I live in foster care with my sister who is two years younger and I also worry about her. I want to be adopted because I think that will give me some piece of mind about what is going to happen to me and my sister. Right now we don’t know whether we will just grow up here until we age out or if our foster parents will follow through with their threats of having us move if we misbehave. I do well in school, am more of a home body and try to be good. My sister doesn’t do as well in school but she has a fun personality, loves to eat out and go places. I hope my C2Adopt worker can find a family who wants teenagers but I know most people want babies.
This is one of the many reasons I am involved with C2Adopt. During the period from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, we are running a campaign called “Building Family Ties” to help with the important work done by C2Adopt in helping these kids and families both before and after adoption. As a person directly helped by C2Adopt, I encourage you to donate to this worthy organization during this campaign. My goal is to raise $2,500.00 and any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
