I was. Did you have a good foster home? A bad one?

I loved my foster mom and still talk to.her on occasion. I went in there as a very high risk teen by the time I left I knew everything about everyone in the house. I was in a group home with 9 other girls.

 I was until I was adopted. I had sweet foster parents but their bio son raped me several times through the year I was with them. I was 8. I was adopted 4 months before I turned 10.

I attacked my dad at the cps office and was sent to.juvenile. When I was put into foster.care I was drinking alot and was really out of control. They thought I would run away at the drop of a hat so I was hardly allowed to go anywhere without supervision.

I was in 2 different foster homes from age 12-14. The first one was terrible! The foster parents and 2 of their sons were very mean! The kids would hit me and push me around all the time, the mom put me on a "diet" and all I got to eat ALL day was 1/2 a bologna sandwich, 1/2 a banan and a slim fast shake. They would make me sit and watch them eat steaks, pizza and real food. Then the mom stopped letting me visit my aunt (only family who visited me)unless I lost 5 pounds that week. Then the state found out that the dad and his sons were molesting the other girl that was there, so they moved me. I was there for 6 months and didn't get anything, clothes , allowance nothing!
The second foster home was great! The first day I was there they took me out to dinner to celebrate my coming and to meet the whole family (they had 4 grown kids of their own and a ton of grandkids.). They also gave me $50 for my allowance and the next day the mom took me shopping for clothes. ALL the money they got for caring for me they spent ON me. I felt truly happy for the first time. I still talk to them and its been over 29 years. They are now 89 and 87. And the most sweetest people around. Even after I was sent back home they called to see how I was and to make sure everything was all right.

I was from seventh grade until I turned 18. My first home was good, second wonderful (I consider them my family), third was HORRIBLE, fourth sucked, fifth and final, sucked. 

My second foster family was wonderful. I lived with 3, sometimes 4 other girls. I still talk to them and go to family gatherings. For as far as Im concerned, except on medical papers, they are my family.
