It started with a video “Straight Outta Beverly Hills” shot by Jade Collins-Parnell a film student at the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn New York. Overnight the video attracted thousands of views and an outpour of love and support after shedding light on growing up in the foster care system. A triplet herself Jade met the 19 year old quadruplets Bianca, Madison, Tiffany, and Paris Lucci, growing up in Beverly Hills.
The Lucci quadruplets were born and raised in Beverly Hills until they entered the foster care system on Christmas Eve at age 11. Surviving every imaginable hardship the video is a glimpse into the quadruplet’s heart wrenching story of first over coming neglect and abuse and then ending up in the foster care system at age 11. The Lucci sisters were eventually split up and spent several years in and out of various foster homes and group homes. While in the system they filled their "black plastic garbage bag" multiple times moving from one place to the next. Many times the few things they owned were lost, stolen or just left behind.
Their strength and undeniable bond shines through in the Straight Outta Beverly Hills video and you find yourself rooting for them when they defy all odds and not only graduate from high school but go onto college.
Below is a link to the “Straight Outta Beverly Hills” video.
The average foster child moves an average of seven times before the age of 18.When a social worker arrives to pick up a foster child to move them to a new home; they bring a black, plastic garbage bag for the child to put his or her possessions in. This May during National Foster Care Awareness Month the Lucci Quadruplets will be launching their non-profit foundation called “Case of Love”. Their mission is to provide children entering foster care with a duffel bag containing brand new belongings to help ease their transition into foster care.
