Elijah Nealy Adopts Youth Who Aged Out at 21

Enjoy this great interview Chester Jackson and Denise Royal did with Elijah Nealy, a gentleman who made a lifetime commitment to a youth who aged out of the foster care system. Elijah became an experienced parent about 15 years ago when he began to parent his daughter Karen when she was an older teen. He became Karen’s dad about 15 years ago and has just begun to parent Alex and become his “morally” adoptive dad after Alex aged out of care at age 21. Mr. Nealy offered a great perspective on commitment, adoption, moral adoption, and how to parent youth who move in as young adults.
