Amari's Story

a story of hope for parents of adopted children:

I believe there is HOPE whether you are parenting a child that you feel disconnected due to the shifting nature of adolescence or parenting a child that is rejecting you due to the effects of early trauma.

It's easy to become overwhelmed by fears that your child will never change.

Here is the story of Amari to encourage and inspire you. She has chosen the often difficult path of healing despite her wounded early childhood and is living a life of kindness and courage with hopes of being a nurse one day.
