May is National Foster Care Month, a month set aside to acknowledge foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, policymakers, child welfare professionals, and other members of the community who help children and youth in foster care find permanent homes and connections. During National Foster Care Month, we renew our commitment to ensuring a bright future for the more than 430,0001 children and youth in foster care, and we celebrate all those who make a meaningful difference in their lives.
Thank YOU to each and every person who has a role in making a difference in a child’s life! Together we can change the world. One child at a time.
I know first hand the hard work and dedication that goes into being a Foster Parent. Although May is set aside to bring awareness and to recognize everyone that has a role in the child welfare system…It really isn’t about us. It’s about all the abused and neglected children in need of love and care. Not everyone is called to become a Foster Parent, but every single one of us can love, encourage, support and pray for families that are Fostering. Reach out to those you know who Foster…how can you make a difference?
