First Perspective Voices

A DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET - in 1996 at the age of 5, I was adopted by my two loving parents. I thank god for the gift of adoption because for me it was a second chance at life and love. I now use my voice to share the experience of ADOPTION and Foster Care from my own perspective and the voices of Other adoptees first hand.

While on my journey of healing…I am on a mission to inspire, mentor, motive, and encourage, adoptees, youth in foster care, their families and professionals. The experiences of those affected by adoption and foster care are forever. Many of us are trying to heal from our experiences and we need the support of one another to help aide in that process. Unfortunately, foster and adopted children alike have had multiple traumatic experiences before finding their forever homes and for some, that may not be there happy ending. By connecting with various individuals I can help provide emotional support, knowledge, insight, and understanding on the knowledge of foster care and adoption. The effects of foster care and adoption never go away. I am working to help prevent children, young adults, and adults from going to dark places of neglect, resentment, hatred or even suicide.

Below you will find shared experiences and quotes from individuals who have been placed in the system and additional reference sites I’ve share for emotional support. If you would have resources or information you would like me to share, please leave a comment or send me an email at
