Colby has been in care for nearly two years. He was abandoned by his mother at 6 months and went into a guardianship situation. His guardian became too ill to care for him. He never met his father. At age 10, he was just alone and upset. He really acted out—3 group homes in the first three months. He went to three foster homes over the next 18 months. He was chronically in trouble at home, school and daycare. Many counted Colby out, but I always saw a nice, sweet, boy who was hurt. He was never violent and often bullied. He came to his last foster home and his life has totally changed. He is the nice, sweet boy I saw. He has had no disciplinary issues at school and made the honor roll for the first time in his life. Colby has never had any outside interests until the last few months. He has become interested in drama and will be in his first play next month. His new foster home wants to adopt him.
