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