May is National Foster Care Month. It’s a month where we join with others across the U.S. on behalf of tens of thousands of kids growing up in our communities and neighborhoods … without a permanent family.
And it’s a month where we celebrate the children’s stories we’ve been able to share, the kids who’ve found families and permanency, and the milestones reached along the way.
Recently, WACAP introduced the 150th child on “A Family for Me”— a video feature where children in foster care get to showcase who they are and talk about the family they envision.
The video helps us:
- Introduce others to these amazing kids as we seek the family that’s right for each one; and
- Provide each child with a special experience and great memory.
To date, almost 90 children who’ve participated in “A Family for Me” have found families.
WACAP would like to say thank you to all the businesses and organizations that have hosted us. We’re grateful to all the caseworkers, advocates, and foster parents who helped us coordinate scheduling. Thanks to our great videographers, and thanks to the KING 5 Morning News team for putting these segments together!
