I Am a Foster Care Child

Frightening being in a strangers home

On thin ice, unsure of every step

Scared of not returning to your own home or family
 
The "New Kid"
 
Every child deserves a chance to be with a loving family
 
Roommates, get too attached, heartbreaking
 
Court dates, nerve wrecking
 
Adaptable, caring, strong, tough
 
Remember you are part of another family now too
 
Extraordinary, beat the odds, Don't let the unfortunate event define you.
