To inspire a more compassionate, trauma-informed foster care experience and eliminate the pipeline from foster care to homelessness.

Anayia's Story
Please take the time to listen to Anayia's story. As a former foster child, we wanted to give her the opportunity to share her voice with our audience! Kids in foster care are often ignored and forgotten, but we are here to change that, so please take two minutes to hear what Anayia has to say!


My Journey through Foster Care

I’m moving again, leaving myself behind.
I’m moving again, losing some of my mind.
It doesn’t seem right, it never seems fair,
I thought I was someone, more than a chair.

The words hung between us, just dangling, not said.
The look in her eye, the whisper of dread.
It must be a mystery, a puzzle, a crime.
Her heart was broken, as broken as mine.

If they walked in my shoes, if they lived in my head,
For a minute, an hour, to hang by a thread.
Afraid to belong, afraid to need much,
Afraid of the doorbell, a siren, a touch.

Why can’t they see me? They watch me, they stare.
I’m a person with feelings. I am, I swear.
Never at peace, never at home,
Surrounded by people, always alone.

I’m moving again, leaving myself behind.
Moving again, losing some of my mind.

Someday will be different, they’ll see into my heart.
They’ll know I am human. I guess that’s a start.
Someone will love me, someone will care,
Someone will see me…more than a chair.
