An adopted teen shares her life experience with other teens in foster care. Entering the system at age 10, Cheyenne wasn’t absolutely sure she was ready for adoption when the opportunity presented itself. But she soon realized that love is what she was really after. “Older children need to feel loved as much as younger children do,” says Cheyenne to those who are considering adoption through foster care. Now, with a loving family which includes her grandmother, Cheyenne speaks out to share the importance and the joy of adoption through foster care. This month, as the country celebrates adoption, please consider adopting an older child through foster care.
