I am one of the lucky ones. I grew up in a home, with two parents who loved me and provided for me. I was safe and secure. This was my “normal” and I assumed everyone else had the same. The first time I realized I was lucky, was when a boy named Anthony moved in with us. I was in the first grade, my brother was in third grade, and now we had another person joining our family, a foster brother, and he was a fifth grader. I had heard the word “foster” before.

July is the official “Make a Difference to Children” month. By implication, it means to make a positive difference in the life of a child; helping them to transform to a healthier, better or improved state or situation through a personal relationship. Unfortunately, the Family Care Network works with children and youth whose lives have become different because of negative or damaging relationships. But our mission, “to enhance the wellbeing of children…,” is fulfillecd through our network of individuals making that positive difference.
