WHO ARE FOSTER PARENTS?
Foster parents come in all shapes and sizes from single parents with biological children, to couples who have never parented before. Foster children don’t need perfect parents; they simply need a committed loving adult. And research shows one strong relationship can make all the difference.
In reality, foster parenting is less about “who” and more about “why” and the “what.” Foster parenting is a gift of true love. To share your love with a child is to give a foundation that can sustain the seasons of life especially in the pivotal chapter of foster care. A foster parent is simply ready to love. Love is lasting when it is real and dependable, two powerful pieces often missing in the world of a child needing foster care.
