Adolescents and teens in foster care who visit the website for Represent magazine will find stories that have a familiar ring. The stories are by and for teens in foster care, and many talk about their experiences of living in a foster home or group setting.

Each issue of Represent has a theme; recent themes have included life after foster care, the long-term impact of sexual abuse, and the difficulties of teenage parenthood.
