I am a mom, wife and a yoga teacher who believes seva (service to others) is an essential piece of a vibrant, healthy, and happy community.
When Ryan asked me to be a part of Foster for Life, it was an easy thing to say yes to. Young adults who have a supportive community contribute to the world with fresh, new, and exciting perspectives. They keep us evolving and challenge the status quo. Unfortunately, children who have been raised in the foster system typically lack the support needed to flourish as they navigate adulthood.
It seems absurd to me that with so many resources in our country, these young adults fall through the cracks. It has been proven that when you look at an object, it changes; and what you observe continues to expand. We can “see” these young adults, nurture their gifts, be there to listen, and help them find the resources that will aid in cultivating a fulfilling life.
