Change a Life...Become a Foster Parent! Please share your story of a life that has been changed by submitting a brief narrative to Foster Parent Success Stories.

Opening our home to at-risk children has been a blessing to our family on several levels. Our children are learning by example about caring for people and are developing a greater appreciation of their circumstances. We’ve met some amazing families through fostering. Our own family has become a testimony for friends and neighbors considering making an impact on our community. Personally, the experience has helped us grow by being forced from our comfort zone into more selfless mindset, focusing on serving others. However, the largest blessing is seeing how a balanced family-life has improved the quality of life for the kids we’ve hosted and adopted.
