I became frustrated today with the lack of accessibility to obtain benefits for individuals who were once in the Foster Care system.  There are so many individuals who fall into the 80% failure rate coming out of foster care.  To me this is absurd considering the benefits out there for us.  I received my Bachelors at UTSA for free.  This was one of the many benefits that is available to individuals who grew up in care in the state of Texas.  By taking advantage of the tuition waiver I was able to get an education paid for in full.  Today I contacted the State of California to see if they had any benefits that I could access to get my masters.  I spent over an hour on the phone trying to get a hold of someone who could even direct me.  This saddened me to the point that I felt the need to begin this blog.  There must be other people out there just like me.  Who need help to become successful only they do not know where to go, which questions to ask, etcetera.  I pray that this blog will become a tool for people who need help, want help, or just want to tell their story.  Welcome to “Let Me See The Light”.  May this page enlighten you.  God Bless.
