Aaliyah (formerly known as Mia) was found as a stray by one of our volunteer’s family members in fall of 2013. She was fostered and gained confidence through DDR before being adopted just in time for the new year in 2014. Here’s what her adoptive mom has to say about her in 2018:

Aaliyah is such a sweet, goofy, gentle and beautiful girl. Every single person she meets adores her. She is my best friend and every day with her is better than the last. I couldn’t love her more. I’m so lucky to have her, and I am so grateful to her foster family and DDR for bringing her into my life.”
