When foster children turn 18, they are shut out of the foster care system and no longer receive support because at that point they are legally adults. Foster Care to Success (FC2S) has been working since 1981 to provide a support system to new adults who have left the foster care system. FC2S is the oldest and largest national non-profit organization working with college bound foster youth. Annually, some 5,000 former foster care students turn to them for help.

If we have off from work or school, there’s nothing quite like watching the snow fall on a winter’s day. But when it comes to emergency situations, that beautiful scene can become a hazard.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
First of all, I wish everyone, everywhere joy, good health, peace, love, and happiness in this upcoming year!
Second of all… how are you doin’ with your New Year’s resolutions? Did you make any? Hmm?
As for me, I’m at the point where the normal resolutions of life are… well… they don’t always work out as planned, do they?
The weather was favorable at Central Airport in Pennsauken on December 17, 1934, when an assorted group of men in technicians’ coveralls, civilians in long coats and fedoras, and cameramen with hand-cranked motion picture cameras assembled on the ground near the hangars. They came to witness a wooden framework covered with cloth carry two men into the air, pushed by two large propellers mounted on the back of the flimsy wings that extended from the crate. The machine was more than 20 years old, and it had not flown in a period nearly the same length. It had been built by the Wright brothers of Dayton, OH, only eight years after they had been the first humans to fly.
