This Sunday, Nick News with Linda Ellerbee will premier a new half-hour special, "Foster Care: A Reality Check," at 9:00pm EST on Nickelodeon. With almost half a million children in U.S. foster care, this special will address tough questions such as: How did they wind up there? How do they cope with moving from home to home? And what happens when they're no longer kids? Hear stories from children like Isaiah and Solomon, twin brothers from upstate New York. "One thing (my mother) said that really bothered me was, um, she never meant to have me," Isaiah says.
"They may not have chosen the path they travel," says Ellerbee, "but they have a lot to teach the rest of us about courage, strength and resilience."
"Foster Care: A Reality Check" premiers this Sunday at 9:00pm EST on Nickelodeon.
