Just two years ago, Eli felt the weight of the world on his shoulders. His mother was constantly involved in abusive relationships and cared very little about the well-being of her children. After she received a DUI, Eli and his siblings were removed by CPS. Eli went to a shelter while his siblings went to a foster home.
“At the time I was an atheist and really had no hope of things getting better. But I remembered my stepdad telling us about God one time, so I tried praying. I asked Him to protect my brother and sister and to help us all find a better life,” he recalls. The very next day, his case worker came to tell him they had a new home for him at a place called Boys and Girls Country.
At BGC Eli found a loving family, a path to grow in faith and a stable home environment he had never had before. But he could not stop worrying about his siblings in foster care; he had to make sure they were safe. With the help of his teaching parents, a lawyer and his case worker, he started advocating for them to come to live at BGC. A month later they were finally reunited here. Now they have a hopeful future and a place to thrive thanks to the support of our generous and caring donors.
