Editorial Reviews

In an unparalleled call to action, Diane Sawyer and the resources of ABC News look at the crisis of the foster care system and at ways children can be saved. Sawyer casts a light on young fractured lives, as she takes a rare look at foster care across the country. With unprecedented access -- bringing cameras where they have never been before - she explores a system many consider broken, but one that is struggling to change. According to the latest statistics, just over 800,000 children pass through the system every year, more than 500,000 of whom are taken into foster care. For them, the average length of stay is 31 months. A third are in the system for more than three years. In addition to "Primetime," the DVD contains this extended reporting:* Nightline's Cynthia McFadden follows young people who are aging out of foster care, with nowhere to go and few resources.* 20/20 takes a second look at a thriving program to help get foster children placed for adoption by having professionals photograph them.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Calling All Angels is a very good discussion of children of all ages and their experience in foster care. It discusses residential care and foster home care, plus the family problems that brought the children into the system. The problems that the children bring with them once they are in the system are not glossed over, so that watching this DVD is useful for professionals who want to work in this system. But it also pays attention to realistic solutions as well. Recommended
