Foster Care – Marcy & Felipe
Felipe took matters into his own hands for Mother’s Day 2022. He reached out to his case manager to ask if he could have a gift card or cash to take Marcy, his foster mom, out for Mother’s Day. Case managers and supervisors gave him a fifty-dollar Visa gift card to use for the special occasion. Felipe took Marcy, and the rest of the foster household, to Applebee’s and made sure she had plenty of food the entire time! Felipe says, “I just wanted to give back to someone who has given so much for me. Marcy has shown me that I can achieve my goals and reach my potential.”
Felipe has aspirations to join the Air Force in order to get his pilot’s license, and then plans to get into real estate. He says he would like to make sure that his Mom (Marcy) is set up financially, and without stress, for the rest of her life. He wants to be able to give back to her after everything she’s done for him.
