Maria has spent her entire life in the government system, living in institutions while being separated from her younger sister. After years of waiting for the chance to be united with a forever family, she eventually aged out of the system and became ineligible for adoption, never experiencing the love of a family. Without additional support, Maria faced the unfortunate options of either remaining in the bounds of an institution, or enduring life on the streets without access to the tools she would need to break the cycle of poverty.
Maria dreams of becoming a Psychologist and providing a future for herself and her sister. Now that she is living in the Dream Home, Maria has the chance to live in an age-appropriate and supportive environment, while giving her an opportunity to pursue her college degree and learn necessary life skills. By sponsoring Maria, you can ensure that she is provided with the guidance, love, and support she needs to thrive, and ultimately is given the opportunity to change the system and reach her full potential.
