A Foster Teen's Boyfriend Heads to Iraq

Producer David Sommerstein of North Country Public Radio presents the story of 17-year-old Brittany LaBrake. She signed herself out of foster care at age 17 and rented a house with her boyfriend, who became something of an emotional safety net. The boyfriend has now been called to duty in Iraq.
