In the Casey study in Oregon and Washington state, foster children are 7 to 8 times more likely to have suffered abuse than children in the general population.

Foster children were found to have double the incidence of depression,

  • 25% suffer PTSD
  • 35% suffer Eating Disorders
  • 50% suffer Chronic Medical Problems
  • 50% of foster girls are pregnant by age 19
  • 50% of males are incarcerated by the age of 20
  • 80% of Death Row Inmates spent time in foster care.

All the statistics show that society is failing these kids.
