Thousands of Jay Z fans packed Quicken Loans Arena to see the rapper perform on Sunday night.

Among them, hundreds of special guests who happen to have one thing in common.

Ada Couch knows what foster care is like, she grew up in the system.

“When I was released at 18, my foster mom just told me, ‘Hey, you’re 18, get out,’” Couch said.

It was six years ago that the same system that she grew up in took her four kids away.

During an abusive relationship, she found herself in trouble and was sentenced to six years in prison.

She served five years and eight months.

After being home for a year, she and her family are rebuilding and snapping back from a vicious cycle, thanks to another foster child.

Kevinee Gilmore, known for creating #FosterCare, is helping to make that possible.
