A Christmas Tree for Kristiona to make new memories

Posted Nov 29, 2021
Kristiona is an amazing young lady who has become a strong, amazing member of the community. She is currently getting her masters while also teaching little ones at a local school. She has had a very rough upbringing and Christmas hasn't been a fond memory growing up. This year she wants to start fresh and get her very own tree and decorate it in the best way she knows how. She would love this colorful one to brighten her home and her heart, while making new holiday memories of her own.

Kristiona is 28 years old and lives in CO

Originally, Kristiona was placed in Foster Care at the age of two where she was adopted, only to again be bounced around from foster home to foster home at the age of nine. She was adopted and then returned to foster care where she aged out. Kristiona became independent and started her college journey and has been successful at it despite everyday obstacles and medical issues. Kristiona has graduated from CMU with her Bachelor's degree and is looking at continuing her education to work with children. She currently works with an early head start preschool as a teacher and enjoys every moment. Kristiona is committed to breaking a generational cycle of abuse and lack of education. Her ultimate goal is to own and run a summer camp for children in foster care, that is not only fun, but can also provide them with therapeutic and mentoring supports.
