We were so happy to have Susan Punnett visit WGTS 91.9. Susan is the Founder and Executive Director of Family & Youth Initiative. Family & Youth Initiative connects teens in foster care with adults who become their support systems, ensuring teens have adults to rely on for advice, guidance, affection and a sense or belonging.

One of the many things they do is throw birthday parties for older foster kids that didn't have the chance to have a special birthday.

You can learn more about Family & Youth initiative by clicking here. Also if you are interested in older child adoption reach out to your local foster care agency or one of the private agencies that have programs for older child adoption.
