Foster Stories

Foster Stories is produced by Foster Care Alumni of America (FCAA), a national nonprofit that is run by a board of volunteers made up mostly of alumni of care. The stories you will hear come from alumni of care, judges who hear foster care cases, social workers, CASA volunteers, foster parents, adoptive parents, biological parents/relatives of a foster child, service providers, legislators, lawyers for parents and children, and you if you want to contribute.

To share your story please write it out and practice telling it and then record it on your smart phone. Email the recording to Please limit the story to 4 minutes; or, if it is longer, break it into parts that are no longer than 4 minutes. It can be an experience that you had, a song or poem that you have written and want to perform, or something that you want to talk about.

If you want help in telling your story, you will find information on this page about strategic sharing. Once we have your story, someone from FCAA will be in touch with you to follow up and make arrangements for broadcasting it on the air and over the internet.

FCAA does not pay for stories and will ask that you sign a release allowing your story to be shared for free with other radio stations and social media. If you have questions, please contact me at
