Foster Care Month

May is national Foster Care month. As a foster parent, I would like to get the message out. There are hundreds of thousands of youth in foster care at any given time in the US. Many of them in need of permanent homes, and others just in need of a safe haven at a difficult time. Please consider supporting these kids. If you are unable to provide a home, there are still many opportunities to help. Foster kids need mentors, agencies need financial support, communities need education. I urge you to contact your local county or private foster/ adoptive agency. Find out how you can make a difference in the lives of children and youth.

I am including a link {I hope it works...} to Foster Club an online community for the support of youth in care and adults who want to help. They are featuring outstanding youth this month. Kids who have been in the system and have over come adversity and used it to help others. Take the time to read some of their stories. They are truly inspirational.
