"Love is the hook to our lives."
- Syriana, a youth in foster care
About the designer: "My name is Syriana and I am a 16-year-old girl and I have been hoping for a 'Forever Family' for a very long time. I am looking for a family who can provide me with the love and support I need and deserve. I believe everybody deserves to have a loving family and I am hoping that there is one out there for me. I feel I would be a good addition to a family because I am helpful, joyful, kind, and enjoy new experiences."
Syriana is searching for her forever family. Could yours be a match? You can learn more about Syriana by visiting her profile.
Fostering Creativity is a public awareness campaign that seeks to empower those who have experienced foster care to share their perspective with the world. It is the voices of those who have actually experienced foster care and adoption that are the most important. Fostering Creativity aims to empower these youth to raise awareness about foster care through the power of art.
Right now, there are more than 8,000 youth in Massachusetts foster care and hundreds of them have no permanent family. Their voices are often unheard. We want to change that. We hope you will join us #SpeakUpforAdoption by supporting the creativity and unique voices of these kids.
