This case study is a follow-up study after four years of five former foster youth, 19-21, who were part of my Ph.D. study, on their way to adulthood. Their everyday life are focused with a retrospect on previous interviews in 2008, 2009. Their narratives are about experiences of obstacles and challenges and how  they coped with them, as well as about the formal and informal support they received.
