What is essential for kids and families? Safe, loving homes

All children deserve to grow up in safe loving homes, free from fear and violence. Please make sure that DSHS's Children's Administration has the funds needed to keep our children safe. We have been foster parents in WA for 13 years. Two years ago we became the forever family for the two children you see here. We love them so much, and are blessed by having them in our lives every day. When biological family members are not available many foster parents become loving forever families for wonderful children like ours each day. Please continue to support and champion the foster parents who voluntarily open their homes to abused and neglected children every day.
