A Mom Wishes All Her Kids Sweet 16
We share a beautiful story of a Mom trying to make things right. “Judy” has faithfully attended every sibling visit to show her six children that although they do not live with her, they still live in her heart.
When Judy’s son was asked what he wanted for his 16-year-old Sib-Link birthday celebration, he requested “a home-cooked meal” from his Mom.
After wiping away her tears, Judy prepared for the birthday visit. She arrived with heaps of comfort food she had prepared in advance.
She even brought to-go containers so her children could take the home-cooking back to their foster homes.
Judy also had t-shirts made in different sizes with the number 16 printed on the back, so all her kids would continue to feel a part of the celebration. A WONDERFUL “Sweet 16!”

Our Sib-Link® visits provide opportunities for separated siblings to get to know each other again – to create a shared history and a healing reservoir for the rest of their lives.
When a sibling has a birthday, we make it something to remember!
