One of the goals of the FCN Foundation is to erase the stigma of Foster Care Alumni and it won't happen unless we speak up!
But we can't do it alone. We are inviting all alumni of Foster Care, whether you were in the system for years or were adopted out, to speak up about their experience and how it made you a better person.
Not one story is the same and all deserve to be heard.
The stories will be shared on our social media pages and on our website starting in September.
Please see the requirements below and submit your story to light up the world.
Video must be in English.
Video must be 60-120 seconds (1-2 minutes).
Must be a transitioning youth or foster care alumni (regardless of city or country).
It can be filmed on a cell phone. Selfie style is best.
If adopted out of foster care, you may participate.
No lewd stories. If the story is about a form of abuse please discuss how it empowered you.
No stories that involve another party. If told, the story cannot contain someone else's name.
