A Family Reunited After Tragedy


When Amber* was identified and removed from a trafficking situation, the Open Doors Care Team was called and responded immediately to her needs. They helped Amber settle in to a foster home and she welcomed the familial feeling. The Open Doors Care Team also advocated for her sibling to be placed in the same home. However, both children longed for their mother.

Their mother wasn’t perfect, but was not to blame for the trauma Amber had endured. The mother worked hard on her case plan and was eventually reunited with her children. The Open Doors Care Team helped Amber navigate this new relationship with her mom. She and her sibling now have a greater understanding of trauma and its impacts. With the support of Open Doors, the family now works together to advocate for one another and hold each other accountable to their treatment plans.
