I Did Foster Care

I worked with an agency that allowed me to care for children who needed a loving home. 13 People

    My Foster Care Experience Was Hell.

     I was in care for 4 years and probably the worst for years of my life. All i'm saying is that the woman who put me under her roof, should be put on the child offenders register and should never be near a child again. Revolting person.
