3 years in Florida’s and Michigan’s foster care system
David was adopted from the foster care system as an infant by a single man who worked in the hospital. David grew up with five other siblings who weren't related by blood, but loved each other as such. In 2008, David moved to Traverse City, Michigan, to be closer to other family members. The following year, David lost his father due to a heart attack. This placed David back into foster care. David experienced two longer-term homes and three respite care homes, which David views as learning experience that has shaped the person he is today. David is a baker, conversationalist, a photographer... and a foster kid.
