This contest is closed. You are invited to enter FosterClub's CREATIVE EXPRESSION contest! Art, poetry, music, essays - and any other creative outlet - are encouraged that capture the theme: "What Family Means to Me". For young people in foster care, family connections can be difficult. Some young people have been separated from family or have strained family relationships. Some foster youth are looking for family connections - either finding relatives or seeking an adoptive family.
