Novy says she remains hopeful despite years of turmoil
Put into foster care by authorities after police claimed her home life was unfit for children, Novy was placed in a loving home for the first time. While this placement was short-term, Novy remained close with her first foster mom.
Novy says she experienced abuse in subsequent placements.
Despite 19 years in the foster system, Novy is working toward becoming a child advocate lawyer, so that she can work on behalf of children going through similar situations.
