    Thank you for sharing this journey with us. It sparked a powerful discussion in our homeschool this morning. It seems unreal to us that kids “age” out. I am ashamed to admit that I never knew this before you started this journey. We are praying for you and your family. We are also believing God that we are going to be able to financially support this ministry!

      I’d like to comment on Angela’s post…I myself just learned months ago that kids “age out” of the foster care system and are left out on their own. So, you’re not alone! It’s just astonishing to me that in our world (& more importantly our towns), that kids can be turned out on their own at such a young and vulnerable age. It’s a fact you just cannot ignore!

      But, that’s where we all can help and make a difference. Because of Ryan’s awareness and New Family Tree’s foster care transitional housing initative, we can help these kids. Through New Family Tree’s (NTF) initiative we will be able to provide these kids with affordable housing, mentoring and basic life skill training that they have lacked. We want to help and reach these children so they do not end up victims and homeless, to give them a future and show them God’s love. So, lets not feel ashamed of what we haven’t known…lets start making a difference for them for the future!!
