Foster Families

“Colorado’s County Departments of Human Services and Social Services are looking for some really special people to be adoptive and foster families.  Becoming an adoptive or foster parent is an important decision that will change your life and that of a child forever.  Hundreds of children in Colorado are waiting for a family.  One of them might be waiting for you.”  — Colorado Dept. of Human Services

An article in today’s Denver Post, in conjunction with their recent investigative series on child abuse, reports that Colorado needs hundreds more foster families to meet the need.  If you’re thinking about becoming a foster parent, the Colorado Dept. of Human Services’ Foster Care Program can get you started.  They sponsor the website, where you can find out about foster parenting and adoption and take the first steps toward giving a child a better life.
