Video: Antonia Makes the Most Out of Life in Foster Care

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman May 08, 2015

Each year more than 400,000 children are removed from their homes in America.  Antonia was one of those children.  Answering tough questions about life as a foster child, her story is touching.  

Antonia knew that it was up to her to make the most of her life, regardless of what situation she found herself in.  Although she was often afraid, she was blessed to have her sister with her.  Together, they comforted each other, but they were still missing the security of home and family.  They were in and out of the system staying in foster care until aging out.
