On New Year’s Day I’ll be jumping into the Atlantic Ocean in Coney Island – but as they say, I’ll be freezin’ for a reason. Why? To raise awareness about the thousands of youth in foster care at risk leaving the system without any family support. In fact, every 23 minutes another young person ages out. This is totally unacceptable. As my parents can attest to with my frequent late night calls...(!), you never outgrow the need for family.
So help me support the work of my agency as we find unconditionally committed families for teens and youth. If you want to know more about what we do and why, visit www.yougottabelieve.org or watch the Toles Story of Adoption (http://bit.ly/ygbstoryofadoption).
