There, a young mom shared her story of bouncing from home to home in the foster care system until she was finally placed in a group home and aged out when she turned only 18.
What were you doing when you were 18? What were you like?
I was an immature obnoxious teen, desperate for attention and love.
I was determined to have the best time possible on my senior trip because I sure thought I had earned it.
I was consumed with having the cutest dorm room and making the right friends in college.
This young lady...at 18, she was homeless.
No home, except a tent given to her by the transitional living program.
No means to live or provide for herself.
And no one ever noticed.
Rise up, O Church.
Meet Cody, a young man on the cliff of his teens, longing for a future very different than his past...
Hoping for someone to commit to him and his brother.

A young man who longs to commit to someone who is committed to him, and he's modeled this in his love and faithfulness to his younger brother, Willie.

Loyal brothers anticipating for a family to be loyal and faithful to them.
May the Father open our eyes to notice, to see, to act by grace.
Together, let's pray, share, and advocate...because they are worth it.
