2020 has provided us all time to reflect about our lives and what we want for our families and futures. It has also shown us the importance of community and supporting each other.
If you’re trying to figure out what’s next, look into becoming a foster family. Foster parents play an integral part in helping foster children overcome obstacles, trauma and find success in life. It can be a positive, life changing experience for your family and the children you care for.
