Latrea also has visual and hearing-impairment, and she’s endured more than 30-45 operations to correct various health problems.
Dealing with major family issues, including drug-addicted parents, she and her sister entered the foster care system when Latrea was twelve and her sister was four.
This is where they would remain until Latrea reached the age of sixteen when they were eventually adopted. Throughout their time in the foster care system, she and her sister encountered countless instances of abuse. Latrea being the oldest, always felt that it was her job to take care of her sister. This is something she’s been doing since the day her sister was born.
Latrea was always there to make sure that her sister was taken care of, even sometimes sacrificing herself.
