CHILDHOOD BEHIND

This passion project focuses on children who have emancipated out of the foster care system. I am partnering with Roy Mass Youth Alternatives , through their Turning Point and Centro Seguro Program to take photos and hear the stories of young men and women who went from being part of the Texas Foster Care system to being homeless.

The adoption issue in America is bigger than babies needing homes.  It’s also forgotten children, those left without family to live and learn about life alone.

Thousands Waiting for Adoption

I’m excited to share these stories and images with you. These stories will be about the Hope and Resilience and Strength of our human spirit and about the people who become the families these children so desperately need to thrive in our world.

 

This project is starting January 2019.
