  1. Strange, but I was not aware that this sort of support even existed.
    Back when I was in the foster care system (early 1970s, New Jersey) I was only aware that my situation was constantly in flux.
    Then again I left the system fairly young, lived with my father and step mother for a few years, then left to be on my own at age fifteen. I suppose I didn’t qualify.
    I need to find some way to support children that go through such times. I know their pain well.

  2. A step in the wrong direction. There has to be some other way to close the budget gap than to take from these vulnerable young people.
    I think there should be laws in every state to help young people who reach age 18 and are still in foster care.
    I don’t know if it’s the same thing, but my sis was a “ward of the court” in NY. She didn’t get anything after age 18 that I know of. Her life turned very tragic for a while after that.
