If I met a kid entering foster care the Advice i would give them is to not be afraid, that thay are not the only kid that this is happening to. to stay strong and speak up for yourself if you dont like something or someone. You have a voice and rights to your self. You are not being punished its not your fault. ask all questions you may have and talk to your social worker cause they are the ones that are going to help you. dont shut down and not talk. its okay it is not gonna ruin your life, You can overcome this. its not going to be forever its just temporary. I will give them my number so they can call me.
