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 it. “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.
