We wish we didn’t have to write these bios and introduce you to any of these amazing kids on the Heart Gallery. We wish they all had their own forever families who loved and supported them and were able to provide a safe, stable, nurturing home. Sadly, that’s not the case, but some of these bios make us happy as we write them because we are so inspired by the kiddo being talked about. This is one of those bios. We’d like you to meet Star. Folks, her name is an apt description of her. Despite all the trauma and disappointment she’s experienced in her life, she is a shining example of what can be accomplished in the face of those obstacles. Star is a multi-talented young woman, excelling in music and in art. She’s also an exceptional student, and is always seen at the top of the Honor Roll in school. In any other context, Star would rightly be incredibly proud of herself…strong, self-assured, and confident. But her past experiences come creeping back in to her life and rob her of those qualities at times. She wonders if she’s good enough. She wonders if she’s worthy. She wonders if she’s ever going to be perfect enough to make a family notice her and truly see the real her, not just the temporary behaviors that sometime bubble up because of her past. The need for attention (either positive or negative)…the defiance…the disrespect. Those things don’t define Star, but they do come into play when she gets a little down or uncertain or anxious about her future. Friends, Star should be focusing on how amazing her future is going to be because of her spirit and natural gifts and abilities, not worried about whether she’s good enough to be loved by a family again. We can’t brag on Star enough, and we know she’s worthy of all the good this world and your family have to offer. Help her see it, too, will you? Ask about Star today.
