This adult shares his sad story of life in foster care, and then aging out of it. He talks openly of loneliness, neglect, and abuse. He shares his heartache over the fact that the cycle has repeated itself now that he has children –- children who are in foster care. Every year over 20,000 youth age out of foster care. Sadly, statistics are not in their favor for creating a successful adulthood.
This film was created for Salaam Garage with the intent of educating people about foster care and about those who age out of the system. The hope is that more loving adults will step forward to foster and adopt these older kids, all of whom are deserving of loving families.
