i have been a foster child for about 4 years now and i have been living with the family i am with now for almost 3 years. if it was not for them i would not have a place to be and i would not be as happy as i am now. some people have some strange opinions about foster kids and you can ask me anything you want about them and i can tell you the honest truth about them
