A foster care alumnus describes her journey from living with her parents until age 9 to moving continuously between foster care and home. During her teenage years, in her 13th foster home, she finally found the kind of love she was looking for and was accepted into the perfect home. Her foster mother passed on intelligence and wisdom and helped guide the rebellious youth through high school, college, graduate school, and authoring her first book, "Truth Be Told: A Foster Child's Recollection." This Real-Life Story was developed as part of National Foster Care Month 2016.
