May is National Foster Care Month and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank foster parents for all the work they do caring for foster children. By opening their home and heart, the play a vital roll in the childs healing,
Foster Parents commitment leaves a mark on generations to come. Foster Parents are helping to break cycles of neglect, abuse and help a child to be the first in the family to finish high school and even go to college sometimes. All the children leave your home knowing there are many other paths in life.
You dont get nearly enough thanks or recognition for all your efforts, but we at Compass Health appreciate all you do and want you to know. Although all the children you have helped dont always tell you, their lives have been changed forever by having known you.
Thank you for sharing your family and your home, giving love and hope to the children. Thank you is such a small phrase to convey all our feelings of appreciation. On behalf of the staff at Compass Health, we thank you.
