A Social Learning study on the long term affects of the Foster Care System, which is a substitute care for children who are placed away from their parents or guardians, and for whom the State agency has placement and care responsibility. This includes, but is not limited to, placements in foster family homes, foster homes of relatives, group homes, emergency shelters, residential facilities, childcare institutions, and pre-adoptive home. Twenty-five thousand kids leave the system each year; this is their take on life and the system in which they experienced. Each has different circumstances, which influences their journey throughout the System. This study focuses on personal experiences, advocates of all backgrounds, laws, reform, justice, and long term affects.
