As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has worked in child welfare for over ten years, my eyes have been clearly opened to the broken foster care system. My perspective has changed even more since becoming a foster parent, almost two years ago.
I am so passionate about finding innovative ways, specificallly through travel, to help foster youth aging out of foster care. These youth are forced to leave their parent (the foster care system), as 18 year old "adults" and need help moving forward in their life journey.
"It is in all of us to defy expectations, to go into the world and and to be brave and to want, to need and to hunger for adventures, to embrace change and chance and risk, so that we may breathe and know what it is to be free..." Meg Chevrette
