Stranger's Generosity Transforms Children's Lives

Recently Sierra Forever Families was notified it was a beneficiary of a bequest from the Howard Boscus Estate. Though generous throughout his life, many were unaware that he planned something quite extraordinary.

He planned to give away the vast majority of his estate to eleven different children's charities.

Sierra Forever Families received that generous bequest gift for its endowment. Within a short time sufficient earnings had been generated to help fund the adoptive placements of several children.

Kaitlyn and Abbygale are two sisters recently adopted by the Morris Family. Adoptive mother, Cindy, describes it best, "My husband and I feel blessed that we now have two wonderful daughters who fill our lives with numerous activities, boundless energy, and – best of all – love! Kaitlyn, our oldest daughter who is now 13, has shared with us what it means to her to have a loving, stable home. 'I feel safe and not scared anymore.'"

Two young sisters' lives have been transformed because of the generosity of someone they never knew. Mr. Boscus's generosity will continue to transform the lives of children and youth in foster care for many years to come.
