What do you wish you knew about the foster care system?

More than 150 children in foster care, foster parents, and foster care workers filled the “I wish my ___ knew…” in a survey sent around the state by Commonwealth Catholic Charities, HopeTree Family Services, and Lutheran Family Services of Virginia. The answers were heartfelt—and eye-opening.

For National Foster Care Awareness month, we’re featuring some of the responses we received through a series of videos with a former foster youth and her adoptive mother. Other written responses will go on Facebook.

We always have a need for more foster parents, particularly for older children. Do you have what it takes? Please contact us today.
