Star of "The Young and the Restless" was Former Foster Child

Often times, with all of the behavior difficulties that are exhibited by children in foster care, it's easy to forget that they too have the potential of achieving success. The following website is a link to a foundation dedicated to children in foster care. What's great about it is the founder of this organization. Her name is Victoria Rowell but those who watch the soap opera "The Young and the Restless" might know her as "Dru." She spent 18 years of her life in foster care and is an advocate for enriching the lives of foster children through the arts.
