La Familia-Namaste is a nonprofit social service agency that provides adoption (international, domestic, infant, and special needs) and treatment foster care for children. At the clinic, we treat the kids and their parents. I started treating there out of a need to give back, being that I have been so blessed in my life.
The clients are so appreciative of our services, and every night I am so touched by the smiles of the children, and I wonder how these fragile young beings cope with their experience. It feels good to be able to bring some brief period of comfort to the brave adults who have chosen to foster and adopt these beautiful kids.
