Tamisha Macklin sits for a portrait in Aurora, Colorado, on March 21, 2014. The portraits on the wall are part of an extended family that Tamisha had great support from when she was growing up in and out of the foster care system. She battled with drugs that were prescribed to her for depression as well as problems with the law. She now works on many levels in the community with outreach trying to help kids in the system that are in the same situation she was when she was an adolescent. (Photo By Helen H.

Former foster care kid Diego Conde, 18, lost his mother in 2008 when he was only 12 years old. On his arm is a tattoo dedicated to his mother who died at age 40 from cancer. Conde said he got the tattoo because he wanted to have something on him to remind him of her everyday. As an only child with no relatives, he spent years navigating the foster care system and lived with five different foster families. (Photos By Helen H. Richardson/ The Denver Post)
