Making a Difference in a Young Man's Quality of Life through Foster Care
The quality of life Allan enjoys from his LifeShare foster family is truly a gift
(Lexington, SC) -- Seventeen-year-old Allan, who has moderate intellectual disabilities and is autistic, had a long history of behaviors that included running away, self-injury, scratching, and hitting. His parents, who were not well, could no longer meet his needs or care for him.
His life changed when he came to LifeShare just a year ago and joined the foster family of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson.
His behaviors decreased dramatically and Allan has enjoyed traveling to family outings, going to the movies, and swimming in the community pool — activities that would not have been appropriate for him to participate in previously.
