“Every child has a right to have a permanent lifelong connection!”

"The more I moved around, the more I felt like I could just walk away from something if there was a problem.  I felt there really wasn’t anybody there for me, so what was the point in getting attached to anybody, because I was going to be moving pretty soon.”
− Anonymous Foster Youth

“I think if I had a role model in my life, or just a male figure to give me knowledge he had as a young man, that would have really meant a lot, made me a better person.”
− Anonymous Foster Youth

“Nobody is ever too old… to need a committed, supportive and loving family!”
− Anonymous Foster Youth

“It’s important to know that there is someone I can count on who wouldn’t turn their back on me.”
− Anonymous Foster Youth

“It’s really important to make sure before emancipating a youth that they have one person.  If I have somebody that I know I can depend on, that loves me and cares that I wake up tomorrow and am still breathing, I can make it through.  I can walk through it.”
− Anonymous Foster Youth

“I'd like to have a steady place to live in San Francisco because I love it here.”
