Listen to Mary Lee’s adoption story

February 7, 2012

Mary Lee

It’s often difficult for teenagers to get adopted. Most people who adopt are looking for infants and toddlers. But Mary Lee beat the odds. Lee entered foster care when she was 12 and she was adopted one week before she turned 18.

She recently told her story on WKNO-FM in Memphis. You can listen here.

Mary now works as a business development specialist for Youth Villages with a focus on expanding our transitional living program that helps former foster youth become successful independent adults.
