National Foster Care Month

Since I seem to have both being single and other people’s kids a bit on the brain lately, so it seems sort of serendipitous that this is National Foster Care Month. I’ve been thinking for a while about volunteering to be a child advocate (child advocates work with the courts, advocating for abused and neglected kids who are going through the system) but given my transient existence the last couple years, it hasn’t been possible. Now I’m hoping to be a vMentor through the Orphan Foundation of America (where you email your mentee so you don’t need to be in any one specific place). If you have any interest in helping kids, the Foster Care Month website has some great suggestions for how you can get involved, whether you’ve got just a few minutes, a few hours, or more time…
