Meet Marie ~ Founder of Grateful Heart Foundation Inc.

Hi everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our cause and the passion behind Grateful Heart Foundation Inc (GHFI).  I was plummeted into the awareness of the impact the foster care system has on our vulnerable young children when, in 2012, I volunteered as a guardian ad litem (a wonderful organization) in Collier county as the voice of children that have been taken out of their homes and placed in the foster care system.  I was assigned one case that with two young buys, who will remain anonymous, to protect their privacy, had been taken out of their homes in the middle of the night due to child endangerment.  Their mother had an episode due to metal health issues.  Child protective services (DCF) was called and the children we removed.  The boys were several years apart in age.  The youngest, age 2 the older one age 7.  I had the case for nearly 2 years before the kids were adopted.  Fearing that they would not be adopted together.  Through out the process, I would visit them regularly and during that time, I would see the same kids circulating the system.  I recognized that children ages 14 to 18 were rarely adopted.  What happens to them?  That's why Grateful Heart Foundation was formed.  For them!  They belong with us!   239Consign fully supports the cause I'm so passionate about.  Whether you shop or consign, you support Grateful Heart Foundation Inc.  Please visit www.GratefulHeartFoundation.org for more information.
