I AM IN A LOVING, NURTURING HOME.
MY FAMILY IS FOREVER.
My name is Erica* and I didn't have a family for 13 years.
I was shuffled from place to place.
My heart hurt. A lot. I was lonely and sad.
I'd ask myself:
Why would a family want me?
Then, I met my family and they liked me. They listened to me. Believed in me.
Now I have a home.
Thank you, COAC.
