A safe for Ariah to keep her mementos secure

Posted Dec 20, 2023
Before arriving at her current foster home, Ariah has been collecting mementos of her life through the various homes she's been placed in. Because she only has video visits with her little sister and does not have contact with her family as they do not want it, Ariah is requesting a safe to help her protect the few pictures, letters, and small items that are very special to her, as they are the only thing that keeps her connected to her biological family.

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.
