Michelle has been through quite a bit in her 12 years. Her family is facing many obstacles including abuse, poverty and the death of a family member. Sadly, authorities found that the cause of death may have been prevented, which was one of the main reasons Michelle and her younger brother were brought into care.

While the outcome of their case is undetermined, Michelle is with a FaithBridge foster family. She is sweetly outgoing, and often, while in the car with her little brother, she loves to sing him songs at the top of her lungs. It’s one of the many ways she lives into the role of being a nurturing big sister.

Please pray for the children in care who are waiting for choices that will be made about their safety, permanency and future and for those who making those decisions.
