The photographers who donate their time and skill to the Heart Gallery do an amazing job of capturing the spirit of our kids in their photos. This one of our friend Kaiden is no different. It’s a photo that make you want to keep looking at her, and it makes you want to know more. Kaiden’s road to the Heart Gallery has been winding, to say the least. It’s been full of fear, uncertainty, hope, anticipation, and ultimately, disappointment. The obstacles have left Kaiden doubting whether adoption is for her. What is certain, however, is that Kaiden wants and needs the stability, safety, and security of belonging and of acceptance in a home with a family who loves and supports her for who she is, not who they want her to be. Kaiden needs a family to let her be herself and be comfortable in her own skin and confident in her self-worth. What a powerful gift to give to a young woman! And as any of our families who’ve adopted teens will tell you, the real gift is what teens like Kaiden bring to the family in response to that love, trust, and stability.
