Her entrance caused a stir. A 15-year-old girl with appraising eyes and a gruff, resonant voice, she radiated bridled ambition in a room filled with children who were mostly slumped and lost.

hello my name is Ryan Williams I am a former foster child that knows the problems of the foster care system and I can tell you how bad it affects the minds of children from my own first hand experience if you are interested in talking with me Mr. Therolf please contact me either on facebook or google mail but if you do don't ask any questions that you don't want to know the answer to I was in the system for a long time. I want to help people realize how damaging the system is to children right now and I have many ideas on how to fix it to where it doesn't revolve around the caseworkers and their paychecks the system is broken and needs to be fixed if you wish to know the true damage of the system other than the most physical damage then contact me but I want to help so please give me a little bit of your time and let me talk.

A suspicious death, unexplained expenditures and many children hurt. Yet foster care contractor remains in business.
