US: I Went Through the Michigan Foster Care System. The State Needs to Make It Easier for Kids to Find Good Homes, Not Harder. (Opinion)
American Civil Liberties Union and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation (ACLU) – September 21, 2017
I was in the foster care system for 12 years, including 5 years in Michigan, until I was adopted at the age of 17. I love my parents. Still, I wonder whether I might have been spared the years of instability and loss had there been more families out there to care for kids in the foster care system.
