These are a few images from an ongoing project on foster care, particularly adult survivors of the system. My first job out of college was as a caseworker. It exposed me to the array of problems -- poverty, drug abuse, mental illness -- that separate families. Years later I reconnected with some of these children, now grown with their own families. Some have broken the cycle and kept their children out of the system. Other survivors I have found have not been as fortunate and and have had their children removed from their custody.
