You do not have to be a therapist to work with teens, no family is perfect. All these teens want is a comforting home where they feel loved and accepted.
Take Jonathan’s story for instance. Jonathan never thought that he would worry about aging out of foster care when he was 13 and a half, but as he got older things started to become scary as he remained unadopted, approaching the age of 18. But with hope and faith that God had a plan for him, Jonathan was adopted and entered a wonderful home. From the second he approached the driveway Jonathan felt at home. It felt good to Jonathan knowing that this was his home and that he would not have to move to live with another family.
