This Lunar New Year will be a special one for 9-year-old Claire*!
Previously her natural parents did not give her any attention and even lashed out harsh punishments at her, and that affected her sense of security and trust towards adults. However, all these started to change when Boys’ Town found Claire a loving home with her current foster parents who are doting and patient with her.
Boys’ Town noticed Claire’s difficulties and referred her for speech and occupational therapies to help in her speech and social skills. Working together with her foster parents, we helped Claire overcome her emotional struggles and watched her transform from a child who kept to herself to a confident girl now with many friends!
We are heartened to know that Claire is in a safe home now and will be enjoying the Lunar New Year celebrations. She is looking forward to the reunion dinner with her foster family and enjoying the yummy goodies! With your dedication and support for Boys’ Town, we can care for more children and youths who need our help.
Thank you for your blessings and from all at Boys’ Town, we sincerely wish you and your family health, wealth and happiness this Lunar New Year!
