Being a foster kid sucks…in every way

May 28, 2014 at 3:01 am 2 comments

Growing up in foster care sucks. Fucking sucks doesnt even begin to cover it.

Never feeling like you belong anywhere

Never fitting in with other kids because you are a foster kid and different

Never having a “real” family, even though you have an awesome foster mom and foster dad

Never seeing your siblings, because you are deamed too messed up and emotionally unstable.

Never knowing if you’ll be moved, because if it suits your social worker, then you could be.

Being too afraid to talk in case your bio family find out.

Never having anyone to call your “real mom” because no one wants to adopt you and even if our foster mom did want it, the legalities make it near impossible and we’d be aged out before it happened.

Feeling a sense of isolation and aloneness all of the time.

Finding making friends hard because we feel so different from everyone.

Yes, being a foster kid really fucking blows.

    One day you will see how you can use your journey to change the lives of many children and families. I too am raised in foster care system and the older you get it gets harder.

    I am in college and having to explain why my mom is of another race is hard. I have wonderful foster parents but I still don’t fit in, and I will forever be different from there children.

    its hard but not impossible you can do this. you can beat the system and the statistics of the system.

    i believe you will make it and your journey will touch the heart of millions.

    if you are interested I can tell you my story one day, or just check out my blog.

    I am going to follow your blog and if you wanna talk and vent I will read everything you write.

    you are a world changer and history maker even if you can’t see it now. it doesnt get to much easier but you eventually will see that you are in control of your future and can make it if you want to
