Michelle has been through quite a bit in her nine years. Michelle's family is facing many obstacles including abuse, poverty and the death of a family member. Sadly, authorities found that the cause of death may have been prevented, which was one of the main reasons Michelle and her younger brother were brought into care. The family has limited support and is struggling to create a healthy home for their children. While the outcome of their case is determined, Michelle is with a FaithBridge foster family. She is sweetly outgoing and very nurturing to her little brother. When they're in the car, she likes to sing at the top of her lungs.
