Shontaya was bounced from foster home to foster home before a family finally asked to adopt
her. For the first time in her young life, she dared to look forward to being loved and nurtured
and having a forever home. Her dream was shattered when her birth mother refused to approve the adoption. Devastated, she acted out, getting into fights, running away from home, and ultimately being kicked out of school. Life looked like a dead end.
Truly Valued saved her. Two years ago, Shontaya discovered Truly Valued’s Priceless Girls
mentoring program. The loving care she found there taught her that she was valuable, important,
worthy. She began to improve her grades and choose better friends. She’s on a path to college
and a better life. For the first time, Shontaya has a bright future. And she wants others to
have what she found.
