May is National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize the selfless foster and adoptive parents who open their homes and hearts to abused and neglected children. Right now there are more than 2,100 children in need of a safe and loving home in San Diego County. Our Laura Cavanaugh talks with an exceptional husband and wife team who are being honored for their dedication and compassion as resource parents for the last eight years, focusing on fostering teens and children with medical needs.

It is truly a gift that can change a child’s entire future. If you have a strong desire to make a positive difference in the life of a child, touch a life and brighten a future, open your home and open your heart.
