It’s been a long and busy summer!
In June we traveled to Washington D.C. with Casey Family Programs to cover “Shadow Day”.
Shadow Day is the brainchild of California Congresswoman Karen Bass – a 3 day event during which members of Congress host current and former foster youth from across the U.S. in Washington in an effort to help them understand the inner workings of the House of Representatives, learn about the legislative initiatives related to foster care, and share their stories with policy makers.
In the month that followed we had the privilege of catching up with two remarkable young women who shared their personal struggle in overcoming the challenges of growing up in the foster care system.
Movie to come – meanwhile enjoy these snaps!
