“Were it not for good parenting, any one of us could have become a foster child.
Children do not have a choice who brings them into this world.
Foster children are the innocent victims of parents who let them down…they did not protect and nurture them. If everyone showed compassion and did a little bit of good to help a foster child, their lives would be enriched with love. Being part of Voices for Children Foundation is my “little bit of good”. We can all do good.”
