Stories of Hope

“Sam”, The Pyjama Foundation & UnLtd

“Sam” was nine years of age when he was removed from his family and placed in foster care. He had never been to school and had no literacy or numeracy skills when he was placed into Year 4. Sam was then transferred to the special education unit.

Over the next two years he lived in five different homes.

The shining light in Sam’s life arrived when he was introduced to Cathy, his volunteer Pyjama Angel. Cathy was able to follow Sam throughout his five foster placements, providing a constant presence when the rest of his world was changing.

Together Cathy and Sam read books aloud, played educational games, and focused on fun. Together they are developing Sam’s love of learning – ultimately making a positive impact on his life and through care and support helping him to see a bright future for himself.
