Meet Idah, Maximillan, and Joyce . Idah, age 21, dreams of becoming a physical therapist. Maximillan, 21, dreams of working in medicine. And Joyce, 23, dreams of being a nurse. Under normal circumstances, their dreams of becoming these things would be fairly simple, but without parents to guide them and provide for them, these are nothing but dreams. Luckily this isn’t the case for Idah, Maximillan, and Joyce. Though growing up looks different for these kids who grow up in Children Homes, they still have plenty of opportunity and preparation for successful fulfilled lives.
