Summary
"Sometimes, parents aren't able to look after their own kids, for a variety of reasons. When this happens, the kids might live with relatives, or they might enter the foster care system. Kids in the foster care system face a number of unique challenges, and their lives aren't always very easy. Sometimes they are separated from their brothers and sisters, and sometimes they move through many foster homes in a short amount of time. The foster care system tries to minimize these problems and provide kids with a safe and loving house between homes" --Cover, p. 4
