37 Graduates Celebrate Overcoming Tough Obstacles on the way to Success

Tomorrow’s a big day as we will celebrate 37 foster teens graduating high school. This is always one of my favorite events because it gives us a chance to reward teens who have overcome tremendous obstacles and say thanks to those who helped them. The event is so full of hope and inspiration. But I always remind them, this is not an end, but a beginning. They have already shown they have the strength to persevere through tough times. Adulthood — often without a family — will bring a whole new set of problems. But they have experience to draw on.

Here’s more on the event:
