Why I'm a Foster Parent

Consider becoming a foster parent…the children of our community need us. On any normal day, my mind immediately goes to the kids. What time to I get them on the bus, is there a test at school, what time is that doctor appointment and how many kids will I have to take with me? Is it the dentist, the doctor or the speech therapist today?  More
