Sam was brought into care due to his father's neglect and his mother's absence in his life. Unfortunately, not long after entering foster care Sam experienced more trauma. Sam has now been placed with a caregiver who is helping bring out the best in Sam. She has known him and his situation since he was young and Sam is thriving under her care. He is supported educationally now through his IEP and is doing much better in school this year. The staff say that he is a joy and that he helps other peers in his classroom. Sam loves to play around, especially at the ocean.
