11,370 Kids In Georgia Are In Foster Care Right Now
Imagine being 10 years old and being awakened in the middle of the night by a stranger
telling you in a gentle, yet unfamiliar voice, that you must leave home, due to a crisis that has nothing to do with you. And then in the midst of this turmoil you and your siblings are separated and placed in different homes.
This story has repeated itself in some form in the lives of 11,370 kids in our state over the past year.
