A friend’s family in a small town in Canada have been battling for months to keep their friend out of a foster home.
But now the family is calling on people to help find her.
The family, who are both deaf and have limited hearing, has been on a long road to get her a permanent home.
The 27-year-old has been homeless since September last year and has been living with her parents in the small community of Woodstock, Alta., a town of just over 5,000 people.
The Woodstock family says they were able to find their loved one in August last year after they received a tip-off from the RCMP that the young woman was in need of assistance.
The RCMP say the family contacted them to ask for help after hearing about her needs, but the family said they had been living in Woodstock for two years and had no history of abuse or neglect.
“It is so heartbreaking.
I have no words to describe how they are feeling right now,” said Kristin Woodstock.
The mother of two has been struggling with depression since losing her husband to cancer in 2017.
The couple’s only child, who also has hearing loss, has not received the help she needs.
“My son is deaf, and he’s just an idiot,” said the mother.
“I mean, you can’t even talk to him about what he’s doing.
I don’t even know what to say to him.”
The family’s story has touched on an important issue for people with hearing loss.
Many people in the United States and Canada have had difficulty finding permanent housing in communities with low levels of housing.
