Year Ten – 1996

The increase in foster parents wanting to adopt the children placed within their care was a huge blessing in our Year Ten, but it brought with it a new set of challenges. As a provider, FCNI couldn’t be more thrilled to see our loving foster parents want to become forever families for so many of our kids, but to ensure that these transitions could be successful, we needed to provide them additional support and resources. Read our Year Ten narrative, and experience two incredible stories which demonstrate the bottomless compassion of our foster parents; no obstacle was too big for their love to overcome!

We hope that you will join us over the next 30 weeks as we share the journey of the Family Care Network, highlighting our partners and collaborators who made the last 30 years of care possible.
