Aging out of foster care: Abigail's story

Abigail Leal is a Buckner FYi Center client, and she shares her story of aging out of the foster care system, and what it means to help show other foster care children they can become a successful adult. 

"I think the National Aging Out of Foster Care Awareness Day is so important because kids are able to look at people like me, but we're able to see videos like these and people like me talk and say, 'Cool, if they can do it, I can do it,'" Abigail said. 

May is National Foster Care Month. You can make the difference in the life of a child who needs a loving and supportive home.
