Stories by Teens in Foster Care
Entering foster care allowed me to have a better relationship with my mom.
My mom and I fought all my life. Sometimes, she insulted me and used foul language, saying things like, “You’re never going to be sh-t,” or “I should’ve never had you.” On occasion, she hit me. Nothing I did seemed good enough for her, even when I got A’s in school.
