I am a single foster and adoptive parent. I have been fostering for 3 years and I had the honor of adopting my son Franklin August of 2017. After his adoption I took a break from fostering. It was a sweet time that we had just together to continue to bond before we restarted our fostering journey. My son was my first foster placement and I was able to adopt him a little over a year later. Even though I had already adopted, I didn’t feel like our foster care journey was over. I want my son to see firsthand how we need to help others in foster care and live sometimes uncomfortable lives in order to make a difference.
