I’ve always wanted to adopt a child. I remember when I was growing up I used to tell my parents that the only children I would have would be children that I adopted. Of course I was blessed with three beautiful kids that I love very much. When I was married my husband and I had checked into becoming Foster parents. I’ve always had a heart for children and helping provide one a home would be a blessing to me, not just the child. Although I’ve put the Fostering/Adopting plans on hold, I do plan to make this happen one day. Matter of fact, I even listed Foster a Child on my Life List that I published recently.
Did you know that May is National Foster Care Month? Did you know that it would take less than 1% of the U.S. population to provide a family for every child in foster care? It’s amazing to think that 463,000 children are currently in foster care and 123,000 children are waiting to be adopted. Every child deserves to have a home with caring and supportive parents.
You can learn more about fostering and adopting by visiting AdoptUsKids.org and see how you can get involved. Even if all you can do right now is help spread the word and promote awareness of the children waiting for homes to welcome them in.
