What are They Worth?

AARP spends $25 million per year in advocacy for seniors. All children's advocacy groups combined spend less than $1 million. We must care for our present AND our future. This seven-minute audio interview with Robert Fellmeth, Executive Director of the Children’s Advocacy Institute, is well worth your time. http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/report-all-50-states-failing-help-abused-and-neglected-kids

We Love This!

"There’s no reason that foster kids should experience the same turnover rate as McDonald’s when it comes to their caregivers." ~Chris Chmielewski, Founder Foster Focus Magazine. Chris spent five years in foster care before he aged out of the system. He’s channeled his talent and passion into creating Foster Focus Magazine, America’s only monthly foster care magazine. Here’s our favorite thing about Chris: He is funny, funny, funny. You have to love a guy with a great sense of humor. http://fosterfocusmag.com/

Their past has not defined them. Instead, they’ve risen above it and aim to make the world a better place. http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/local/2015/02/03/deerfield-couple-works-bolster-foster-care-experience/22814789/
