Earcylene Beavers started fostering children at her Los Angeles home three decades ago and discovered a world of heartbreak that left children unprotected and in desperate need of love and care.

Social workers would show up in the middle of the night with newborn babies for Earcylene to care for, babies separated from their birth parents - often for drug use.

EARCYLENE BEAVERS' HEARTBREAK

Earcylene would care for the babies - sometimes two at a time - but soon a social worker would drop by, and as unexpectedly as they arrived, the babies would be gone.

“It would hurt my heart. I cried so much over babies leaving me, and I said, ‘I can’t do this no more.’ ” she revealed.

Over 27 years, Ercylene fostered 1000 children, adopted 3, and serves as legal guardian to several more.

THE SAD STATE OF THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM

Earcylene was desperately needed. On any given day, there are nearly 443,000 children in foster care in the US, and statistically, six percent of those children will remain in the system for five years or more.

HBO DOCUMENTARY FOCUSES ON FOSTER SYSTEM

Earcylene's story became public knowledge when HBO premiered their new docu-series "Foster" in May 2019. The series follows foster care children at different stages of their lives, as well as their parents.

EARCYLENE'S FERTILITY ISSUES LED HER TO FOSTER CHILDREN

Earcylene and her husband experienced infertility, and she decided to give her love to foster children who so desperately needed it.

Over 27 years, Ercylene fostered 1000 children, adopted 3, and serves as legal guardian to several more.

The love she bears every single one of those children is reciprocated and they call her "Mom USA."

“I’m doing what I want to do. My kids are happy. I got God in my life. These kids fill a void,” she said.

And Earcylene has filled a void in her children's lives, sharing her heart, her love and her home in the hour of their most desperate need.

HEARTBREAK OF SIBLINGS SEPARATED BY FOSTER CARE

For children who enter the foster care system, fate sometimes deals a second punishing blow - separation from their siblings.

The organization Together We Rise chose Disneyland as the perfect location to reunite 350 siblings that were separated in the foster care system.

The program “Disney Days” was created by Together We Rise to help children in the system connect with their siblings after being separated into different foster homes.

The children spend the day together bonding with their brothers and sisters and enjoying the sheer joy of Disneyland.
