You may have seen or heard the ongoing quest from foster care agencies that they are looking for foster parents.
A never ending quest. Unfortunately.
But there are many ways you can contribute to being a foster parent. You don’t always have to opt for the full time, long term foster care. Sometimes there is a need for temporary short term placements, sometimes only for a few days or during the weekends.
Talk to foster care agencies in your area and ask what their needs are.
It is like Tom Hanks’ character in “League of Their Own” says about baseball: “It is supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.”
