Becoming a Foster Parent with Children’s Services of VA
3 May 2019
We talked about the important role foster parents play in the lives of many children in our communities. Jennifer told us about the process to becoming a foster parent and Jessica told us about her experiences in the last 9 years as a foster parent. We discussed the many different situations that create the need for a foster parent in a child’s lie, how long the typical stay with a family is and other ways people can support foster families even if becoming a foster parent isn’t for them. Once of those ways is supporting Froggy’s Closet – which was featured on a previous Valley Today episode: https://theriver953.com/podcast/families-reaching-out-group-frog-froggys-closet/
After the show, we talked more candidly with Jennifer & Jessica about her experiences and the impact all the children in her care have had on her and her family.
