Our friend Brooklyn has had a rough go of things in her young life. Despite the trauma she’s experienced, however, she loves doing things that all young women her age like to do. She enjoys playing outside, reading, and watching movies. She’s good at math, loves playing on the monkey bars at the park, and she is easily entertained by her coloring books and baby dolls. But that trauma is always in the background, and it impacts her life in ways she wishes it didn’t. She has been diagnosed with PTSD and she sexually acts out due to that trauma. She requires close adult supervision and cannot be alone with other kids while she receives therapies to address the trauma. Brooklyn is beginning to understand that she is strong enough to overcome what she has been through and be the young lady that she knows she can be. Her progress is amazing to watch, and we’re super proud of her. Over time, and with the right family by her side, we know that Brooklyn will become a real example for others who struggle with their experiences. To keep up her progress, Brooklyn will need to be with an experienced mother and father with no other kids in the home. Brooklyn is a work in progress (and aren’t we all?), but she has the potential and the strength to become a remarkable young woman with the right support, structure, and love.
