On October 30th, Willie Garson spoke with Ilyssa Panitz about joining YGB’s Board of Believers, his road to adoption, and the first moment he met Nathen.
“You Gotta Believe campaign approached me to be on their board of believers and I was so honored when they asked. They specialize in in the under-served area of adoption, which are helping older children find homes. A lot of people of course want tiny, little, fresh out of the hospital babies. A lot of older kids get overlooked. They are not broken, they did not do anything wrong, they just do not have their forever family and they deserve one. You Gotta Believe has clients that have been adopted at 26-years-old. It is comforting to know you belong to someone and have somewhere to go is priceless.”
