Getting your learner’s permit and then your driving license is such an exciting part of growing up. For most teens, it’s the first time they get to experience some independence that helps them build so much confidence! This month, we had two of our teens – Josh, 16 and Deandra, 16 accomplish the amazing goal of getting their learner’s permits! We are filled with so much joy that all of their hard work paid off. James got his permit through his High School and Deandra got hers through Case Independence – a program that helps kids in foster care obtain their licenses. Josh said he feels SO excited and that he’s “one step closer to feeling like a normal teenager.” Now, with his full license only a few months away, he dreams of one day having a Mustang car or a motorcycle – “Anything fast and furious!” He jokes. Deandra, on the other hand, was a little more nervous about hitting the roads then Josh but still had the biggest smile on her face as she posed, holding her brand new learner’s permit with pride!
It’s so exciting to see our kids grow and accomplish all of their goals – we’re so proud that A Kid’s Place can be part of these core memories the kids will never forget. Thank you everyone for your continued support!
