Derek Clark (aka rapping dad): Why a Foster Child Needs you to Believe in Them
 

Derek Clark knows first-hand the power of attitude in coping with adversity and overcoming hardship. At five years of age, Derek’s mother and stepfather (his biological father was in prison) abandoned him at a psychiatric hospital. He then was turned over to the Alameda Foster Care system, where he would spend the next 13 years of his life, contending with rejection, humiliation, emotional distress and overwhelming anxiety.
