— Amaria

My daughter was born early and I was afraid my daughter would be behind. RBC taught me each baby is different. I needed to read to her and help her. I learned about healthy relationships, to be a role model, and I became certified in CPR.” 

 

Amaria found RBC two years ago seeking a safe place to take her daughter for Halloween.  She became a mom at 15 years old to her daughter Samaria. Her goal was to be a good mom and create traditions for her daughter she never had. Now at 20 years old, she is engaged, working a full-time job, and is expanding her family. She attends seeds with her fiance weekly.
