Did you know that May is foster care awareness month? Now let’s be honest, it seems like every month is an “awareness” month for something, all of which are well deserved of having their own month. As I thought about the purpose of having a whole month dedicated to foster care I focused in on the word “awareness.”

Awareness is defined this way; “concern about and well-informed interest in a particular situation or development.”
When I read this definition, I asked myself; “Is foster care something to be concerned about?” and “Are people well-informed?” My answers to these questions were; “Absolutely, we need to be concerned about foster care,” and “No, I do not think the average person is well-informed.” 
This first video does a great job of informing us about the situation of foster care.

These next two videos give you a little idea of what it might be like to be a child in foster care.

Would you please consider sharing this post during the month of May to help bring awareness to this all important issue. Thank you.
