Say “Thank You” To These Amazing Foster Families!

It takes a special kind of family to say yes to becoming a foster family. Yes to welcoming a child they’ve never met into their home, without knowing what that child is like or how the existing family dynamic will be impacted. Yes to understanding the damage of childhood trauma, and going the extra mile to help treat that trauma. Yes to paperwork and inspections, IEP meetings and doctor’s appointments and court hearings. Yes to late nights, exhaustion, heartache, and so much sacrifice, all to spark change in the life of a child.

May is National Foster Care Month, a time for communities to come together and express appreciation to the foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, child welfare professionals, and others who work tirelessly to help children and youth in foster care find permanent, safe, and loving homes all across Kansas and Texas.

An easy way for you to thank these families for all they do is to send a gift card. This token of appreciation may seem small to you, but it can make a world of difference to these families. Receiving a gift card of any amount lets them know that they’re seen, they’re loved, and their work matters.
