Help more children like Jayla

Five-year-old Jayla* was her mother’s caretaker when she was removed from her home and placed in foster care. She also had never been enrolled in school.

  Immediately embraced by FaithBridge foster parents, Jayla was placed in Kindergarten, where she was already behind and at risk of needing to repeat the year. Her foster mother was emphatic, “She is not going to fail, I will make sure she catches up! 

 Together, they worked tirelessly at home. Jayla enjoyed learning so much that she even requested to go to school on weekends and holidays! Her Kindergarten teacher was impressed by her progress, “I have never seen a child turn around so fast! 

Today, one year later, Jayla is in a stable, loving home and just finished first grade with excellence!
