Pictures Create Memories for Foster Kids

By macaniff / April 22, 2013

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, local photographer Jennifer Little has created a project in the Landmark Self-Expression and Leadership Program to give foster children the same kinds of visual memories that most kids have.

The project, Storytellers Society Fort Lauderdale, is arranging for 1,500 children in the Broward County Foster system to have their picture taken in their home environment. They will be given the picture as well as a short journal entry written by each child about their lives at that time.

Says Little, “They don’t have many photographs that are following their childhood, and that is a critical part of our lives because that’s how we remember our childhood.”
