May is National Foster Care Month

Did you know it would take less than 1% of the U.S. population to provide a family for every child in foster care? To me this statistic is mind boggling!

May is National Foster Care Month and there has never been a greater need to bring attention to children waiting for forever homes.  More than 463,000 children are currently in foster care and 123,000 children are waiting to be adopted. Imagine how many of these kids don't hear 'I Love You' everyday; or recieve a kiss and a hug from someone that cares about them.

Children in foster care are loving children.  They are children like Shaquane and Edlina and Albert.  Every child deserves to have a home with caring and supportive parents. Most people assume that these kids are problem kids when in reality most just want a loving home to lay their head down at night!

I am trying to help spread the message this month to reach all Americans (okay at least my readers) and teach them about the love and joy that foster care adoption can bring to your life.
