My experience with foster care
**This article is based on nonfiction by actual events that were witnessed firsthand by me; used with permission. As a former foster parent, nothing is more heart-wrenching than to watch a young foster child fall through the cracks of bureaucracy. I’ve had several foster children over the years and this is a compilation of what I’ve observed and experienced with my foster children and the system.
