Aya was placed through Project Wait No Longer right before her 15th birthday. She is the first teen placed through our program that has gone off to college! We would like to share her inspirational story from foster care to adoption and now to college! Congratulations!!!How was the college application process for you?
My journey toward adoption actually began almost 5 1/2 years ago when I decided that as a single, career military woman I was ready to settle down & have a family. Around March or April of 2010 I spoke with a friend & she suggested adoption. Initially, I did not think much of it until I began to watch “Adoption Stories” on TV. The more I watched, the more I thought about it.
