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

The one thing I wish people knew about foster care is that although at times it seems to be challenging and hard to navigate, the foster care system can be a very useful and positive thing. It's all about how one perceives and chooses to view the experience.

What was the key takeaway from your experience of Foster Youth Shadow Day last year? 

The key takeaway from Shadow Day for me was that people care, and when enough like-minded people have the same goal progress is more achievable.
