I’ve had the honor and the privilege of meeting hundreds of foster families through my adoption practice in North Central Florida. These families are frequently adopting children with special needs that require a significant parenting commitment. They take care of our most vulnerable and challenged children with loving hearts and amazing patience. Our Foster Parents are truly heroes.
I feel so fortunate to have met these incredible people and to have had the opportunity to make their family whole through the legal process. There truly is nothing more satisfying than helping a child find love and a future with their “forever family.” If you know someone fostering a child, please take a moment to thank them during this month, Foster Care Month. I know that I’m eternally grateful.
