The Connecticut Department of Children & Family Services, along with the Connecticut Association of Foster & Adoptive Parents have announced their new Help A Child Shine campaign.
The purpose of the campaign is to recruit families and mentors for children in need.
As a foster parent and an adoptive parent, I strongly encourage others to become involved in the lives of these children. Involvement can be as a Mentor, as a Foster Parent, or as an Adoptive Parent. Over the years, I have frequently volunteered my time to share my experiences as a foster and adoptive parent, to assist in the training of prospective parents, and to answer all those questions and concerns that go along with the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent.
Fostering or adopting children in need is a heart-warming experience. You don't need to be rich. You don't need to be married. You do need to have room in your heart for a special child or children, or for special siblings that deserve to remain together.
These children need warm, loving homes and family to support them. But, you'll be surprised at how much love and support you receive back from these kids. Much more than you ever thought possible. Your life will never be the same, and you'll wonder how you survived without these children in your life before...
