It Changes You, Too!


When I tell people that my family is a foster family, they always say “What a great service to the county that is”. I never saw it that way though. To me this little person was my new sibling for 6 months. Caring for this child wasn´t a service, it was family. I am the youngest in my family and i always wanted a little brother. Well in 1st grade i got my wish and my family received a 5-day old named Devon. Devon was my little brother that I could play with, feed, hold and altogether love. Now I´m a 15 year old who was had many younger foster brothers and sisters and can take care of children from 3 months old to 10 years old. Foster care doesn’t just change the future of these children, it changes the families that take care of them.
