Jillian Smith

Biography

First Place Award for "Original Column" by the Illinois Press Association, 2011-12.

21 Schools is based on my daily journal and updates of five multi-racial foster children spanning 25 years. This book is written to assist in preparing people to become foster parents, to be a case study resource for the training or continuing education of professionals engaged in the foster parent system and to make the general public aware of the desperate situation of so many of our precious children.

As the stories are told difficulties in the system will become evident. In addition to the account of six years of parenting the conclusion of the text contains a follow up twenty-five years later of the lives of these children...the successes and the heartbreaks. All names and locations have been changed.
