Event to thank foster parents

Event to thank foster parents

May 14th, 2012 in News

When a person decides to become a foster parent, he or she commits to taking care of and loving children who may come from the worst of circumstances.

May is Foster Parent Appreciation Month, and an appreciation event is being held for local foster parents.

The event will be held from noon-4 p.m. Saturday at Cedar Hill Elementary School, 1510 Vieth Drive.

Mindy Ulstad, board member for the Central Missouri Foster Care and Adoption Association, said events like these are important because they thank foster parents for the hard work they do.
