19-Year-Old Who Aged Out Gets Adopted
Monyay, 19, aged out of the foster care system but recently got the best surprise she could ever ask for! Even though she was too old for youth adoption, she ended up with a mother anyway, being adopted by a woman she’d bonded with for years—her caseworker!
When Monyay first met her caseworker, Leah Paskalides, she wasn’t her biggest fan.
“I didn’t like her, she’ll tell you that,” Monyay shares with Channel 4 Action News. But eventually, the two formed a unique bond!
“She was very motivated and had aspirations for a future, and I wanted to help her to continue to have that,” Leah shared. “So I knew she just needed support.”
