Full Size Bed for Annette who is Emancipating to Attend College

Posted Apr 8, 2019
Annette is quite an amazing young woman. Over 3 years ago she rode the bus to the Dept of Human Services and asked to be put into foster care due to her parent's and older siblings substance abuse issues! She has always been determined to go to college and even turned down the opportunity to be adopted by wonderful foster parents because she knew she would be assured of scholarships if she emancipated. She has worked so hard and now that time has come. She will be moving into her own apartment in early June and is in need of a full size bed. Along with working hard in school and maintaining a very high GPA, Annette has held down a job and saved quite a bit of money to make sure she has what she needs to be out on her own. We would love for her to have abed frame and mattress when she moves.

Annette is 18 years old and lives in Colorado Springs, CO

Annette is the youngest of 6 children born to drug addicted parents. Her siblings are all much older and unfortunately have followed in their parent's footsteps, but not Annette. Early on she took on the parental role and often times tried to help her parents overcome their addictions. She cooked and cleaned for them while attending school and working hard. Finally, at the age of 15 she was removed from that environment and placed with a wonderful foster family who allowed and encouraged her to just be a teenager. Annette has a huge heart for others and immediately began a donation drive to collect school supplies so that she could give them to other foster teens. She said she knew what it was like to not have what you needed and she wanted to help others. Annette is quiet and reserved, but has learned to socialize and interact with her peers. She is funny, happy and always has a smile on her face. She had never been exposed to sports, but decided that she wanted to play on the volleyball team, so she worked hard, practiced daily, and did it! Annette is now graduating and moving out on her own to attend college and she is determined to continue to work hard and make herself the best she can be. She is excited about having her own place and looks forward to it being a calm and tranquil home.
