Alfred is an incredibly resilient young man. He has been in the foster care system since he was a toddler. As of recently, Alfred is being cared for by his older brother with the support of CYFD and both are working towards legal guardianship of Alfred. This is the first time they have reconnected in over 10 years and Alfred has been thriving. He has not run away, his grades have improved significantly, he's reconnected with his extended family, built a relationship to his youngest siblings (also in foster care), and has demonstrated levels of responsibility most young men his age learn over a period of time. Great things await Alfred, and with the continued support of his family and the Department, Alfred will reach all his goals.
