Youth in our Emergency Foster Care Shelter took it upon themselves to thoughtfully organize a birthday celebration during quarantine for a child in care on her Golden Birthday. They serenaded the now 11-year-old with songs, and used their allowance money to purchase gifts, decorations, cake and ice cream to ensure she felt special and made happy memories. Of course, the foster parents and our staff were already planning a special day, but the enthusiastic participation of the children in our care made it an especially sweet and special moment. Your “golden birthday” is the year you turn the same age as your birthday (for example, turning 25 on the 25th day of the month).
