New Ornaments for Kristiona's first Christmas tree of her very own

Posted Nov 29, 2021
Kristiona's holiday memories are not the most positive ones, and while she has worked through her trauma and become successful at what she does, certain things are still very challenging. This year she is starting with a new hope for the holidays and is so excited to get her very own tree to make new positive memories. She doesn't have any ornaments yet and being the animal lover that she is, what better ornaments than these cute woodland creatures. She would love to display these lovely ornaments on her new tree.

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.
