Cute and cuddly. Not the way you might describe a 24 year-old former foster youth. But it's exactly what we would say if you asked us to tell you about Gabriel. He is brimming with charm, complete with a kind, lovable smile and the kind of stick-to-it-ness that makes you go WOW.
You see, lots of "kids" impacted by foster care aren't exactly kids anymore. But they still need love. They still need hope. They still need joy. And yes, they still need us.
Each month One Simple Wish receives hundreds of wishes from kids who have aged out of foster care. And these kids are facing terrible things like homelessness, poverty, incarceration and drug addiction at rates MUCH higher than the average person.
So join us in supporting the "big kids" too. We promise that if you knew them, you'd want to give them big cute and cuddly hugs too!
