Imagine just for a moment what it's like for a child to be in a foster family, or multiple foster families and never really knowing what their future holds. Too many moves with clothes packed in trashbags - too many adults who tell you to call them Mom and Dad - too many new schools and other kids who never really will be your friends. More often than not, that foster child has their life turned upside down over and over again.
But if that child can find an adult, or pair of adults, who are willing to make a lifetime committment to them - adults who will say "I love you" and really mean it - adults who will fight for that child even as the child is fighting them - their lives can be turned right side up forever.
You can bring the smile to that child's face. You can be their anchor in the storm. You can give their life meaning, and you can be the circus for their clowning!
