I also give away copies of my book "Your Amazing Itty Bitty Foster and Adoption Parent Guide" to parents to help the cause.

Terri Levine Children and Youth North Wales, Pennsylvania United States

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also called complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic, painful, and progressive neurological condition that affects the skin, muscles, joints, and bones. The syndrome usually develops in an injured limb, such as a broken leg, or following surgery. However, many cases of RSD involve only a minor injury, such as a sprain. And in some cases, no precipitating event can be identified.

The most common symptoms overall are burning and electrical sensations described to be like "shooting pain." The patient may also experience muscle spasms, local swelling, abnormally increased sweating, changes in skin temperature and ...

Kit Cummings

Kit Cummings Children and Youth Atlanta, Georgia U.S. The Power of Peace Project has a powerful and effective program called Inspired Straight . We are losing a generation of kids in the suburbs. Teens growing up in gated communities are starting with alcohol and marijuana, then experimenting with prescription drugs, getting hooked on opiates, and graduating to heroine. This has become an epidemic, and it's not just for tough kids in the inner city any more. Young people are medicating pain and stuffing their feelings, and the "new normal" is a very dangerous ride. One out of four students nationally will drop out of school this ...

Alfred Poor Children and Youth Havertown, PA USA

Our recent graduates are struggling in the workplace due to a lack of basic "soft" career skills that employers need but are not getting in their new hires. Also, way too many students start college but do not finish, leaving them with the debt but without the increased earning power of a degree. We need to help students and families make better choices about college education opportunities, put more emphasis on becoming prepared for the workplace, and develop the behaviors and attitudes that will make them valuable employees who find success and fulfillment in their work.

Mac Gray

Mac Gray Children and Youth Lancaster, Ohio United States

I want to try and help young people realize that they are not "Bullet Proof" and with every decision they make there will be a consequence they what live with, whether it is good or bad. I would like to keep what happened to me, from happening to anyone else or worse off. Young people think "it can never happen to me." I'm here to tell them that I thought the same thing, however, it did happen to me and with one poor decision the consequences is that I will be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life.
