  • About the Edition

    Over 400,000 US youth are in foster care, mainly due to neglect and abuse by their parents. These youth endure instability as they move from home to home, and uncertainty about their future as others make the decision as to whether they should be reunited with their families or become available for adoption. Foster Youth presents a powerful, real-world look at the lives of these vulnerable young people.
