We are alumni. The system looks different than it did when we were in it because successful advocates like us have been unrelenting in our calls for change. Some people may be put off by the fact that things really are different (dare I say better?) than when we were in foster care. But there is so much left to do and say about the Foster Care System in the U.S. and Washington State. We know for a fact that both youth and adults from foster care still don’t fair as well as their peers when it comes to Health, Education, and over all Well-Being. We know in our hearts that youth and adults face trouble transitioning to adult life, learning how to have “normal” relationships, and asking for help. As the saying goes: the more things change, the more they stay the same. This is why- in a state and country where there are so many groups devoted to a similar mission as ours- I think that Foster Care Alumni of America isn't just vital but necessary; we know what young people from care need to be successful because we have been in their shoes. Join me in supporting this vital movement with FCAA!
