In honor of Foster Care Awareness Month, we are sharing Joseph’s journey from trauma to triumph. Joseph’s birth parents struggled with drug addiction, and when he was less than a year old,  his mother abandoned their family. Living with his father, Joseph often experienced neglect and abuse. At the young age of 3, Joseph was removed from his home and placed with a foster family. From there, Joseph’s living situation was never stable, moving from foster home to foster home.
 
Three years later, everything changed. Seneca’s Kinship Center connected Joseph with a strong adoptive family, one who was committed to supporting him unconditionally. Today, this couple looks back on the day they met Joseph:
 
“Joseph came to us with big challenges. He was physical with other children, and was kicked out of school on a daily basis. Kinship Center supported us in every possible way through the worst times, and without their help, we probably wouldn’t have made it.”
 
With the support of Kinship Center, Joseph’s family received the tools they needed to help Joseph excel in their household and create the future he deserved.

Last year, Kinship Center finalized 249 adoptions with the help of our unconditional supporters and selfless staff. Invest in Seneca’s Kinship Center and help us continue to find forever families for foster youth like Joseph.
