Foster Care, an institution in many societies, it has its ups and downs, advantages, and disadvantages. This thread is for the discussion of said institution. Be open minded and honest but also remeber to adhere to the posting guidelines as stated for all other discussion forums, we don't want to lose this because people posted with out thinking. Alright, let me start by saying that I live in a foster home, so I know somethings. But I also want you to know that I am not a foster child, so I don't know it all. I also want it noted that everybody has different foster experiences (I can tell a few horror stories regarding my many temporary siblings), and that unless you have lived somebody elses life, you cannot truly feel what ever pain or experience they might have felt. This said, let us know your thoughts and feelings about this omniprecent institution we call FOSTER CARE. Foster Care also has laws regarding confidentiality, please do not state full or partial names of others who have been, or are still part of the Foster Care System. Thank You.
