24-Year-Old Single Teacher Adopted Her Own Student To Save Him From A Life Of Trauma

A 24-year-old woman is making headlines as she proves to the world that you're never too young (or old) to change lives. She went above and beyond the caretaker role as a teacher when she noticed one of her students suffering.

The young boy, not even yet 8 years-old, had lived in over 10 foster cares and was on the lookout for the next one that would take him. So his teacher decided that she couldn't just abandon him to fend for himself. However, her journey was met with its own obstacles....

Meet William, A Boy Who Suffered From PTSD

Meet William, a boy who has known that life can be cruel from a tender age. At just four years old, he had experienced enough trauma to be diagnosed with PTSD. He was living from one foster home to another, never getting too comfortable because he never could call them home.

At school, he needed extra guidance and worked one-on-one with a behavioral specialist named Paige who could see his evident struggle. She spent three hours a day focusing on him and noted that "he was very isolated because he didn’t know coping skills" she told Good Morning America. "Since I was one-on-one with him, a lot of our time was spent working on coping skills, behavioral skills, talking about how we behave in school, those types of things."

Paige Quickly Felt Connected With William

At the time Paige Bramlett worked with William as his behavioral specialist, he was still just a kindergarten student with so much life yet to live even though he had experienced more than any boy his age ever should.

Paige learned of the many homes William had had to live in, in just four years. Paige told their story on TikTok, where it has been gaining viral attention for its heartwarming progression. The more Paige got to know William, the more she felt a calling to help him get through, but she had no idea how much of an impact she would be making on his life.

One Day William Stopped Coming

Paige explained that both her and William's journeys completely changed when he stopped coming to school one day: “one day, he didn’t show up to school, and he had never missed a day. I ran into his caseworker collecting his things in the hallway. She told me they were looking for a forever home for him to be placed in."

So Paige, without hesitating, proceeded to introduce herself to the caseworker then asked what she would have to be the forever home William has been searching for.

Paige's Choice Wasn't Supported By Her Family

Paige was only in her early twenties when she made the decision to adopt her student. Her friends and family warned her and told her that was too young. They advised her that no one would want to date her and that she should wait until she was married. They thought she was being insane.

Yet, Paige embraced the criticism and followed her calling. She knew that the good would balance out any risks and that at least she and the boy would always have each other.

Breaking The Trauma Cycle

Paige's strong stance came from her understanding of how badly William needed a safe home and how crucial it was for someone to step up. It was easy for everyone to justify why they couldn't do it, but it all takes to save him is for someone to at least try. Plus Paige didn't rush the process. She fostered him for a whole year before making it official. The day she finally adopted him she shared. “Now, he is adopted, loved, and chosen. My son. We are learning together every day."

What Paige understood, especially thanks to her line of work, was the detrimental effect of trauma on a child's brain and the lifelong process of healing that they would require. She understood how the system worked and that it wasn't always in favor of the child.

Advocating for all children in the foster system she explains: "They don’t see the prolonging of cases that stay open for years — ignoring the voices of children. They don’t see the 100’s messages and phone calls that are IGNORED by caseworkers/people who are in charge of the wellbeing of CHILDREN. They don’t see the hurt, they don’t hear the cries and screams. They don’t."

Yet Adoption Wasn't Easy

Paige also understands that no everyone can foster children and that it takes a lot of effort to actually make it work. In one of her videos she explains: “foster care is so hard...but worth it.” She describes many of the happy memories she and William can cherish together from skiing to dancing, which make the reward so worth the work.

Paige also had to adapt to being a mom to a 7-year-old while being so young herself. "It’s sometimes hard for me to say out loud, like, oh my gosh, I’m a mom. But I'm so thankful for what I’ve been given and for how I’ve become a mom. You don’t expect it to happen so early, but I know it’s how I was chosen to be a mom."

William Took Time To Feel Safe Again

It wasn't easy for William to forget all his trauma ad just move on. It took time for him to believe that he was actually finally safe and that he wouldn't be made to leave again to another home. Because he had been hurt many times, he was always scared that he would lose everything in a second. To manage his anxiety Paige explains: "when I would say goodbye, I would tell him that I would see him tomorrow. He struggled with sleeping and nightmares, so I would tell him sweet dreams, and we worked on skills that would go beyond the classroom."

"It was hard to get his head wrapped around feeling secure, that he won’t have more changes." This is why William needed a permanent home, so he could finally start healing and actually being a kid again.

Their Community Supports Them

Paige and William have enjoyed creating new memories and traditions that they could carry on in their newfound family."We are enjoying creating our own traditions in our own little home this year," To show their support, their community even surprised them with a $10,000 Christmas gift .

Everyone can help these children, even if they can't foster or adopt themselves. Paige takes the time to share with her community all the ways they can make a difference such as donating, getting involved, babysitting, advocating, preparing meals, and educating themselves on childhood trauma.

The time traveler says that on this day a human will have a child with a chimpanzee for the first time but that's not even the worst part. He predicts that this new species will be able to talk and have mixed features. He doesn't elaborate on whether it will be friendly, dangerous, or whether it will possess any superhuman capabilities thanks to its animal DNA.

It is also currently illegal and ethically wrong to procreate with an animal, so whether this even happens, it might never go public.

This might be the worst prediction of all, although it was also predicted by blind mystic Baba Venga. In a world that is still recovering and fighting Covid variants, the time traveler warns that a new Covid strain 'omega' will emerge. However, this strain will be five times worse than all other versions.

The rate that this pandemic has escalated and continues to worsen every time it seems like it's getting better, it's not unlikely that the world will have to gear up to face this variant. It could even take a shape of its becoming its own new lethal virus, such as the one predicted to be uncovered this year in Siberia.

On this day the largest creature is predicted to be discovered in the ocean. Allegedly it will go by the name "Cerine Croin" and will be over four times the size of the blue whale. The ocean is big enough that it's possible that we somehow did miss a creature that big. Perhaps it has been in hiding and is resurfacing due to global warming conditions.

Keep in mind that a Google search reveals that Ceirean, Cirein-cròin or cionarain-crò was a large sea monster in Scottish Gaelic folklore. According to their old saying, it was so large that it fed on seven whales. However, many folklore stories are based on passed on true events.

This isn't their first attempt at trying to convince us that they are from the distant future. Previously they warned that on September 11th, a date that was already significant in history “An alien takes 4,000 skilled workers and children to the planet Proxima B, as a result of another hostile species coming here.”They then follow that up with: “9/14: The largest hurricane in history hits the US East Coast, mainly South Carolina, making it the first Category 6 hurricane.”

While we experienced some hurricanes due to traditional tropical weather, there have been no reports of children kidnapping by aliens, unless that information is being hidden from us. Do with that as you will.
