Successful Families

I am a proud parent.

F. Mitchell, adoptive parent in Pearland, Texas

I had the joy of fostering the three Jackson boys in NJ who were at a point of what some would call "no return". Treshawn is now my son and he is doing well in school. He slowly adapted to society and he loves to makes friends. Treshawn came to me at 40 pounds at age 14 but now he is 17 and 130 pounds and is doing exceptionally well emotionally and physically. I am blessed and very pleased to say I took part in nurturing this life back to to where he needed to be. Treshawn has been on Good Morning America and in People Magazine for surviving and overcoming the odds and succeeding in his life. I am a proud parent.
