Shawna remains in foster care with 3-year-old son, Kai. She is also taking classesat a local community college. She is wishing for support to see her biological mother for the first time in many years before she passes. For foster youth, the few ties to biological kin can be extremely important. Shawna's mother is dying and her one simple wish is to see her mother again and to have her son meet his biological grandmother. Shawna's mother is receiving medical treatment in a nearby state. Shawna is requesting financial support to travel to see her mother with her son and to stay in a safe hotel while spending time with her mother in the hospital. Shawna started college this past fall and is hoping to become a nurse because she "loves to give back to other people."
