#HappyFathersDay to all the dads out there. This photo says it all. This boy is smiling because after years of not seeing his father, we found him. These two now have that special father/son relationship. We make this happen for many #FosterChildren .  Enjoy the weekend as a dad or celebrating with your father. And let's not forget those grandfathers who have stepped in as a child's dad.

One of the biggest challenges for #FosterChildren is the lack of a #Father in their lives. Sometimes parents get separated, not because they want to be apart from their child. One of the goals of #FosterCare is to locate and notify a father so they can be active with their #FosterChild and hopefully have the family reunited with stronger, healthier bonds.

Terrible things don't have to happen to #FosterChildren. Education is the key to getting public awareness to these terrible abuses #FosterChildren suffer while in #FosterCare. Only then will there be more pressure on officials to ensure that this abuse stops to these vulnerable children.

Thousands of #FosterChildren are forced out of #FosterCare without a high school diploma, money or anything to help them survive on the streets. They are easy prey for beatings and rape. Finding their relatives is a solution with lifelong benefits for #FosterYouth and society.

#FosterCareStatistics reveal that because #FosterKids move several times, they can miss important sex ed. Most #FosterCare staff said "someone else" when asked who is responsible for ensuring girls get proper sex ed. The system is failing these girls.
