Annual Appeal Letter: Meet Noah

Dear Friends,

Noah was born with drugs in his system and spent his first 50 days and nights receiving intensive medical care in the NICU. As his condition improved, Jane, a loving

Resource Parent committed to helping youth in foster care, welcomed Noah into her safe and nurturing home. When

reunification with his biological family was not possible, Jane chose to adopt Noah and to facilitate a healthy relationship with Noah’s biological grandparents, as they wished to be part of Noah’s life. When the opportunity arose to foster Noah’s sister, Harmony, Aldea called upon Jane who eagerly said “yes!” to unite the siblings. That call from Aldea happened thanks to supporters like you. While Harmony had a similar tragic start to life as Noah, she is now thriving along with her brother. Harmony adores her older brother, giggling when he enters a room, and Noah dotes on his little sister every day; their connection is undeniable and while children in foster care are not always able to be with their siblings, Jane’s devoted spirit made this possible. Jane remains committed to maintaining relationships with the children’s extended biological family; just last month they supported Jane to also adopt Harmony! Noah and Harmony have found their forever family, made possible by Jane’s loving and willing heart, the tireless work of Aldea’s committed staff, and the generosity of our supporters.

But our work isn't done, as children and families in our community await our support on their journey to hope and healing.
