BnN-Oct-voucher-2017Anyone, ANYWHERE Can Help Children like Harry Potter:

Harry Potter himself was an orphan and there are many children in United States that find themselves separated from their birth parents for a plethora of reasons. Unfortunately many foster parents would say that they are not equipped to handle trauma caused issues such as sexual abuse behaviors, malnutrition behaviors, PTSD, and so on. Transfiguring Adoption provides foster & adoptive parents tools and resources that allow them to better hand past trauma and nurture children.
