I am a foster parent who had a homeless 14 year ol girl placed with her in Sept. By October she had run 3 times, stolen jewlery, money, and eaten everything in sight. She said she liked being homeless. She liked the freedom. I've had foster kids steal from me before and eat me out of house and home but, this girl was different. She had a diiferent demeaner and attitude. There were no boundaries, nothing was sacred. What do homeless youth really want? This girl didn't want warmth, safety, food, or help. Is she what the average homeless youth is like?
