A Family for Tiana

Tiana would do well with a family who can provide flexible structure and support her as she prepares to navigate the adult world. She currently has plans to move back with her birth family when she turns 18 so a family would need to be understanding of the feelings behind this decision. The family would also need to support her in the different possibilities of her moving back, moving back for a little while, or not moving back at all. An adoptive family for Tiana will need to be able to support her cultural and ethnicity identity exploration and development.

The right family for Tiana would be kind, patient, loving, and one who has a thorough understanding how trauma affects development and behavior. She would do great with a family who lives in an area where there will be several opportunities for different activities.

Our Vision

That every young person whose life has been disrupted by trauma and subsequent child welfare intervention will be restored to a safe, permanent family with an urgency that honors the brevity of childhood.
