Timothy has had to deal with a lot challenges in his life. Almost his entire life has been spent in the foster care system; he has lived in a wide variety and large number of placements, including a failed adoption. But Timothy was lucky enough to be placed in a loving foster home in the 8th grade and has been with that same family ever since. Timothy will be graduating from high school as a part of the class of 2011, on the honor roll. He aspires to attend Duke University to study Marine Biology. Timothy has received many honors and awards such as being invited to travel out of the country as a student ambassador. North Carolina’s foster care system has helped Timothy grow into a motivated and respectful young man.
