I know my foster care experience was pretty dismal. What was supposed to be a safe-haven was a place of depravity and abuse. It screwed me up as
much as my previous abusive life had. I don't know if it's any better now, but the foster care system in the 80s was just... bad. In the 7 or so
years I lived in the foster home (after living in group homes, which were also a joke), I saw my social worker a grand total of 3 times, and 2 of
those were after I had run away and was brought back.
One problem imo is lack of resources and manpower. They just can't keep up with it. We have much more important things to do, like butt our noses
into every other countries business whether they like it or not, than to actually spend money on our own problems here at home.
