May is Foster Care Awareness month!
This month I'm sharing about the foster care system. This beast of a system that cares for almost half a million kids yearly is still somewhat mysterious to those outside of it.
This will be a 3-part series...
Part 1: The What, Where & How of foster care w/ data & info;
Part 2: The Who of foster care, sharing my personal journey;
Part 3: *possible* Interview w/ a former foster youth
This is part 2. In this episode, I share my own personal journey as a foster youth advocate and then a foster parent. I share my WHY, my start as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), and a few experiences I've had with my foster kids. I hope you enjoy!
