"Foster care to me is about each of these words and about the person who takes us in."
- Aylin, a youth in foster care
About the designer: "Hi, I’m Aylin. I am a girl of Hispanic descent with a great sense of humor and I love to draw. People who meet me immediately note my big smile and it is clear that I take pride in my appearance. I enjoy working on craft projects, being outside in the community, movies, dance, and choir."

Fostering Creativity is a public awareness campaign that seeks to empower those who have experienced foster care to share their perspective with the world. It is the voices of those who have actually experienced foster care and adoption that are the most important. Fostering Creativity aims to empower these youth to raise awareness about foster care through the power of art.
Right now, there are more than 8,000 youth in Massachusetts foster care and hundreds of them have no permanent family. Their voices are often unheard. We want to change that. We hope you will join us #SpeakUpforAdoption by supporting the creativity and unique voices of these kids.
