What is the one thing you wish people knew about the foster care system from your perspective?

The one thing I wish people would know about the foster care system from my perspective is that as a foster youth it's hard to continue school while in foster care and also being a teen parent. It is difficult because you move from home to home. While moving from home to home you lose credits and lose where you are at in school. Luckily, I graduated high school as both a foster youth and a teen mom.
