More Information
Josh could use some support. Since emancipating from foster care two years ago, he’s hit quite a few couches, tried to reconcile with “family” and struggled with finding jobs. He used to live with one of my foster kids in a previous home and I’ve tried to be a constant in his life. That list is really short. Last year I asked for notes and got 4-5 and they meant more to him than either of us thought they would. One even included a $5 Taco Bell card and you would have thought he won the lottery. When he was down one day he called to see if any more notes had come so I know he really was grateful for the ones he received. He signed up with job corps last week, so if you could specifically encourage that, that would be great. Overcoming adversity advice would be really great as well. And he asked if I had any socks last week - moving from couch to couch you leave stuff behind - so a new pair of socks inside a note would put a smile on his face. He’s a hard worker who has gone through more in his short life than any person should. He keeps pulling up those boot straps and I’d love it if you could tell him how important that is, and let him know he CAN get there. Have a great holiday and thanks for helping Josh out!
