Woman who grew up at a foster care gets $86.000 inheritance from unexpected source


Rainwater Blackfoot was abandoned by her mother and put into foster care by her father.

“He was telling me that he was having a happier life without me,” she said of her dad.

Without the help of her parents, Rainwater’s life wasn’t the easiest.

“There were many years where there was no food in the house,” Rainwater says. “I didn’t have electricity for months.”

Foster care and constant struggle made it difficult for her to accept
help and trust others. “If someone tries to help me out, there is
usually a catch to it,” she said.

In 2008, her father passed away and left her $86,000. She had no idea it was there waiting for her, until recently.
However,  Inside Edition surprised her with a giant check for $86,000.

“I could never have imagined in a million years that all this money
would be sitting for me!” She exclaimed when she finally found out.

Thanks to the We Find, You Keep campaign, which provides unclaimed money
to its rightful owners, Rainwater is able to start her life over the
right way.

“It doesn’t matter where you come from or where you started, sometimes the ending is beautiful,” she said
