Birthday party for Ariah at a roller rink

Posted Sep 28, 2023
Ariah has a birthday coming! She would love to celebrate her first birthday in high school with 10 of her friends and foster brother at her favorite skating rink. The local skating rink will provide food, music, skate rental, and a party room for Ariah and all her friends to have some genuine fun in a healthy and safe environment.

Ariah is 15 years old and lives in NM

Ariah came into care several years ago and has not let it slow her down. She is academically driven and will not settle for anything less than her best. Ariah is very fond of books, particularly the Harry Potter series, and spends much of her time learning something new through books. She's a self-proclaimed "nerd." Ariah also enjoys spending time outdoors, including walking, camping, observing nature, and biking. Additionally, Ariah is excited about going to college but is often told that foster care kids "don't even graduate high school," and she is using this as her driving force to excel in school.
