A Powerful Advocate for Support for Kids Who Age out of Foster Care

Anyone can tell you the dire prospects for kids who age out of foster care without finding the support of a loving family or a permanent home.  This article, written in support of California legislation that would provide additional support for these kids beyond age 18, is written by a young woman who lived it,  just as many of our Hand2Paw kids have.   It provides a window into what it would be like to be without any safety net as a teenager and underscores the need for all of us, government and individuals, to do what we can to be that net.
