Children who are born into traumatic situations, like domestic violence and addiction, are at risk of experiencing further abuse and neglect. But a loving foster parent can be a lifeline for vulnerable children, providing them stability, love and an opportunity for a brighter future.

Jessica Clark and Karlis Thorpe join our Laura Cavanaugh to talk about the journey of fostering and adopting a child and the importance of a true partnership and a village when it comes to supporting a foster child.

You can make a difference and change a child's future for the better.
