“I am thankful to have my daughter back home and my family all together again,” says Mary, referring to Ashley, her seven-year-old daughter.
Ashley entered foster care two years ago due to neglect in her biological home. Her mom was struggling to meet the demands of having a daughter with mental health needs. Due to her behaviors, Ashley was moved several times while in foster care. Her mother was with her every step of the way and worked hard to learn how to provide the care Ashley needed. With Mary’s hard work and persistence, Ashley was able to return to her mother’s care. She is now home with her family, happily adjusted and doing well in school.
