"The system taught me respect, grace, and how to be loved."

Destiny Ness shares #HerStory:

"My worst experience in foster care? After being placed with my birth grandparents... my grandfather got drunk and let my sister and I stay with a cousin, a known sex offender. I was touched inappropriately, and have since had to deal with a lot of trauma.

If you're in foster care now, keep your head up. It may look dark and gloomy now but there is a light. Try and find positives in your situation because dwelling on all the negatives makes it seem a whole lot worse!"
