    Why haven't we heard anything about this girl? Has she been found yet? So much on Jessica, nothing on Adrieane.

    Yes, that's right. They're all missing from the MI foster care system. I presume most of them are runaways, but you never know. Very sad.

    Thank you for linking that website here. I hadn't known about it. When looking at some of the kids, I wondered how many of them were runaways and why were they running from foster care? I also wondered if some hadn't returned to their "parents" who lost custody to the foster system? (I looked through most of the explanation pages and these were just questions that came to mind that I didn't find answers to...)

    I pray that Adriean is safe and pray that she or her peers who have also run could tell us what needs to be done to make them "safe". It's very sad that children run away from the places that are meant to keep them better than at "home". I know some children can be quite a handful and will resist authority at every chance, I am rather certain that some of these foster homes in Michigan are providing proper care, it's just unfathomable that more than 200 kids would leave their foster homes.

    Sometimes I think that Michigan's CPS and foster care is broken.

    IIRC, MI put up this website after the Rilya Wilson case in FL when there was a spotlight on kids missing from foster care systems.
