This chapter explains how the interviews were analysed, drawing on identity theories and children’s rights. It provides a zoom out of the different life trajectories highlighting similarities and discrepancies between individual care experiences. It makes reference to young people’s current lives at the time when they were interviewed and on what they felt helped them. These range from the kindness of strangers, abusive relationships caused by lack of choice to new opportunities provided by new legislation in Romania or the country’s EU membership with its associated freedoms.

Keywords:   Identity theories; UN Convention on the Rights of the child, narrative analysis, transition to adulthood
