The need for foster parents is real. The stats are heartbreaking. Every three minutes a child enters into foster care in the U.S. The number of children entering the system is growing rapidly while the number of available homes is shrinking. There are many reasons people say they could never foster: “I would get to attached”, “I could not give them back”, “Its to much work to be a foster parent”, and I have heard many more. But the stats don’t lie there are 400,000 reasons (children) why you should. Open your heart to a child in foster care, their need outweighs any of your fears.
