DENVER (CBS4) – During CBS4’s Aging Out series, reporter Britt Moreno has explored the challenges surrounding leaving the foster care system at the age of 18. We’ve talked to volunteers and caseworkers who champion these teens everyday. While the statistics about what can happen after foster care are stunning, CBS4 found inspiration in the words these young people use to describe their own lives.
