A Place to Call Home: Precious

Many teens in foster care have given up hope of finding a forever family. 5 on your side photojournalist Joe Eickmeier shows you how an emergency foster care placement for a 17-year-old turned into a place to call home.

Mandy and Jeremiah Stutte had three beautiful biological children, yet they knew their family was not complete.  They fostered kids of all ages for eight years before an emergency foster placement changed everything. 17-year-old Precious was only supposed to stay for a short time, but the minute she arrived, she knew she was home.  Precious is now 19-years-old, lives on her own and attends college.  If would like more information about adopting teens or making a different in a teen's life, call the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at 1-800-FOSTER3.
