A fairy tale finale for foster teen
There are so many tough stories about the foster system. It can be incredibly hard for kids growing up in it. I'd like to thank Denise S. for bringing today's ALGN post to our attention. It is a great one about a young man in Texas who aged out of the foster system and found himself living out of his car. But, he was determined that his foster story was going to have a better ending than that. This poor foster kid (Seth Miller) had become homeless after aging out of the system. A TV news station did a piece on him and the family that had adopted his biological sister decided it was time to reach out to him. They were unsure where it would lead, but the reunion between this foster kid and his little sister was very touching. The family could tell instantly that Seth wasn't meant to be a foster kid. He was supposed to be part of their family. So, they decided to make it official and, at 18, he is being adopted. He is no longer a "foster kid". He has a real family now and has become the perfect piece of a puzzle that this family was missing.
