Birthdays should be celebrations filled with cake, balloons and excitement for what’s to come. But for hundreds of foster teens in the Omaha metro each year, 19th birthdays are often filled with uncertainty, fear and feelings of abandonment. In the state of Nebraska, foster teens age out of the system at 19, often times left without support to navigate day-to-day life on their own.
We are celebrating Happy 19 during the month of September to help shine light on the need for adoptive families for teens in foster care right here in our community. You can be a part of the solution! Help us make 19 happy once again.
