The Day I Age Out

Part Three: Finding Home

A three-part series following two foster youths as they age out of Washington State’s extended foster-care system.

September 27, 2016

Mykell has an emotional reunion and moment of truth with a past foster mother.  Corey finds an apartment and plans to get his high school diploma.  

I guess your story doesn’t necessarily define you, where you come from doesn’t define you. And don’t let the small stuff stop you. Don’t major on the minors.
