Overview
There are success stories in America's foster care system -- stories of former foster children who have beaten the odds despite overwhelming obstacles. The few who overcame the failings of the system battled tremendous odds. They now stand as a beaming light of hope, optimism, and faith for not only the hundreds of thousands of Inspiration to millions across the nation. Fostering Hope for America is a unique book in the foster care world. The authors is a former foster child and a survivor with the exceptions two advocates. These ten individuals come from a variety of backgrounds and from different places in the country. Yet, these ten authors bear one thing in common. They each grew up in the system, and suffered varying degrees of sadness, dangers, and tragedy. They have come together to share their stories with the nation in hopes of saving other children from living a life of despair. These former foster children collectively strive to provide emotional healing and support to those heroes who are currently trying to make a difference in the lives of children who have been removed from unspeakable situations and entrusted to the care of the state. The authors hope that this book will serve as an inspiration and challenge for those who work in child welfare, juvenile court intervention, residential foster care treatment centers, foster children, foster parents, agencies and nonprofits. Fostering Hope for America will take foster parents, caseworkers, and all readers through the heart and the mind of a foster child, forever opening their eyes and hearts to the many challenges, barriers, traumas and maltreatment often experienced by our children in foster care.
