INFORMATION
My name is Laidy.

I was placed into the foster care system for adoption when I was 3 years old. I was adopted at 5. And I survived...

When I was 13 years old, i got placed back into "the system", which is foster care. I was in the care of ACS, in NYC. From there, I was set into a group home (The Watts), and was told what to do and when to do it. It was not easy. Being that age, not many families want to adopt you. From that age I knew it was going to be hard. I would never have a family to call my own. Why was it me that had to go through so much at such a young age? I felt like no one wanted me. Being in the system was hard, but I had been through tougher situations then this already. I aged out, at 18 and did great things for myself. I have a lot to show for it. Staying positive is the best advice I can give to anyone out there that are struggling.

Published my 1st magazine article, in the magazine "REPRESENT!", at age 15. After I did, I continued to write for them.

***Represent! is a national magazine written by and for young people in the foster care system. Through personal narratives and reported stories, our teen staff provide an inside look at life in the system that other teens in care can connect with. Teen readers report that the magazine makes them feel less alone and gives them practical insights into handling the challenges they face. The magazine is also an invaluable resource for adults. Staff, policymakers and foster parents report that reading Represent helps them understand the lives of young people in care in new ways.


...I am now 26, a published author of several poetic novels/books, I am currently writing a book called,"Animal Control". I am married and with (3) children. I have a career (writer) and am a (military/army) veteran. I now am a Pet Groomer/Pet Cosmotologist/Stylist where I attended ITA in Florida and graduated in December 2013.

I am now in school attending Full Sail University earning my BFA in Creative Writing for Entertainment.


I have written many poems on Poetry.com. I used to write for a magazine, "Represent". I have been published by Howard Ely, in several poetic books.

My goal as a writer/poet is to become the new age Edgar Allen Poe for the Millennium era.

Aside from that I want to open a fund or something big for youth in foster care going through similar situations I was in because of the adults that had no respect for me.

I believe in God. And He is always there with me.
