Foster kids are sometimes known as “backpack kids” or “garbage bag kids”, as they go from home to home with all their belongings in a single bag. Artist Bridget Moore created this image to emphasize the difficulties associated with being a child in the foster care system. Often, all of your belongings can fit into one bag, as you may frequently and suddenly have to move to a new home. This can have many negative consequences on the mental and emotional stability of these children, and cause them to react in various ways. It is important to have empathy for these children and attempt to give them a chance to overcome this disharmony that they had no say in creating.
