NYAP Celebrates Independence Day 2012 with all Foster Families, Youth, Children, Staff, and Families
The United States is a fairly young country, and the original birthday of the US was actually not that long ago. In 1776, the original thirteen states came together and separated from England with the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4. During this time, the brave Founding Fathers knew that the future ahead would be full of danger and risk to themselves and their families, but the importance of the country was greater than any one person.
Thus, in 1776, the United States of America was born. After years of extremely difficult fighting and war, the country came out on top and began its existence as a peaceful country. This was the defining moment for the country, and that is why Independence Day is of such great importance for American people even today. Without July 4th, there would be no America.
NYAP wishes all our Foster Parents, Foster Families, Youth, Children, Staff, and Families a safe and Happy 4th of July!
