Children and teens in foster youth are often spoken of in terms of statistics – 10,000 Missouri kids in foster care, the number aging out each year, those who are likely to be homeless or pregnant after leaving foster care, etc. – but they are real, live, one-of-a-kind kids with real stories to tell.
