There are over 400,000 children in the United States currently in the foster care system. Often, these children have been removed from homes where they were neglected or abused, though some come into foster care after losing their parents or caregivers. They have been to some very dark places and they need some stability and hope.
Becoming a foster parent is one way that you can make a real and lasting impact on a child’s life. It can also be a bridge into foster adoption. (For more information about how to adopt a child from the foster care program, click here.)
