A Foster Care Survivor

A Foster Care Survivor

Jenny Maher has been through a lot. Growing up with a mentally ill mother, she was in and out of the foster system. Jenny experienced some bad things in her childhood, but she managed to overcome them. Today, she is an inspiration to anyone facing challenges in life. She's the author of Never Give Up, a book that goes into even more of the obstacles she's faced in life. 

In this episode, we talk about the issues in the foster care system and take a look at some of the mental effects it can have on a person. Listen to Jenny's story and learn more about what happens to children in the system.
