I Did Foster Care

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

    when I was 12 years old, after my meth and heroin addicted mother nearly beat me to death. I remember my mother use to be clean and was only addicting to knitting, but after my father, who was in the military, was shot and things when downhill. I was 9 year old at the time...

    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.

    The feeling of rejection is the worse feeling in the world, but the realization that you are not cared about the same way that you care about this person is even worse.
