Normalcy in Foster Care

As youth in foster care, we want to feel “normal.” Unfortunately, many of us feel far from normal when we are unable to engage in the same activities as our friends who are not in foster care.

In fact, many of us in foster care miss out on critical mile-stones which are instrumental in our self-development, learning, and overall happiness. So whether it’s playing school sports, having access to the internet or a cell phone, getting a job, attending cultural events, field trips or hanging out with our friends, these activities and privileges help us build and practice lifelong skills needed for a successful adulthood.
