A friend of mine who is also a foster parent just had her license reactivated on Wednesday. On Thursday morning at 9am she was listed as available for a newborn placement. Within one hour, she received four (yes, FOUR) calls asking her to take infants. The case managers were literally racing to see who could get to her first with a baby. She received a 5+ pound boy who is less than two weeks old. He is tiny, but adorable!
The need is so great for foster parents right now. With the economy down and foster care reimbursements being cut, the state has lost many foster families. If you have ever considered being a foster parent, please check into it. We NEED you. The children NEED you. There are so many reasons to step out and say YES!
