Foster care survivor offers message of hope

APTN National News
Living in the foster care system isn’t always easy for a child.

And once that child becomes an adult life can sometimes get even harder.

For Kane Blacque he endured life in the foster system and life on the streets.

He now has a message of hope.

APTN’s Chris Stewart has the story.

  1. Let me state clearly that it was horrible what happened to Kane in foster care. That never should have been overlooked and allowed to continue.

    That being said, why have I never seen a positive story of aboriginal children in foster care? I can’t imagine that all of the 30,000 aboriginal children in care (plus all those who have aged out) have been abused and neglected, and taught nothing of their culture.
