Bea’s Story

“I’ve been in foster care since the age of 2.  The reason I was  put into foster care is because of my family.  My mother and father were, and from what I have heard are still, drug addicts.  At 6, I went back home with my mom and that’s when I no longer had a child life because I had to be a mother to my brother and sister because my parents were too out of it to take care of us.  My mom was selling herself and my dad sold drugs.  While I lived with my mom she would constantly have people over at the house doing drugs and there were always a lot of men coming in and out of the house.  Some bad things happened and by the time I was 8, I was put back into foster care.  Things were never the same after that.”
