Former foster child reflects on finding a family at 17

May 11, 2010

Kaylee Allen recently wrote a guest column in the Daily News Journal of Murfreesboro, Tenn., reflecting on her first day with the Berryhills, a Youth Villages foster family:

“When I met the Berryhills, I had expected just another foster home. Instead, I found a family who cared about me — and will always care about me. I’m so grateful they came into my life at just the right time. They gave me so much just by treating me like their own child.” — Kaylee Allen

May is Foster Care Awareness Month. Read the rest of Kaylee’s column at dnj.com and learn what a difference the right foster family can make in a young person’s life.
