Great story about some former foster-youth in South Dakota who are making their way through college.
“Hernandez feels the same. He is now a student at South Dakota State University where he is studying architecture. He still keeps in touch with some of his foster parents. There are still areas of his life that are touched by his past. He doesn’t have a home to go to over the holidays, or for the summer, like his college peers will.
“I was worried about that,” he said. “But everyone has offered to let me stay with them. They’re really supportive. We still have a bond. I could still ask them for anything.”
