Serenity has been with us a year this December and has not had the easiest time. Serenity came to us in the midst of her teenage years which are hard enough. She has severe trust issues, post traumatic stress and has had a hard time with school. When we first met her she was two whole years behind in school. Now, almost a year later, Serenity has made amazing progress and is now working at her grade level. Serenity still battles with the aftermath of her trauma on a consistent basis, but is with a family who has been patient with her and has helped her so much in this last year. Serenity loves to write. When she grows up she wants to write her story in hopes it will help others. In addition to being an author, Serenity has recently expressed her interest in becoming a teacher to help youth like her and give them the support they need to succeed. Serenity has grown so much as a young women and continues to grow every day.
