Upon making the decision to retire this past summer, I completed the paperwork to become a “foster parent” for the Humane Society of Kent County. Shortly after I received a call asking if I would foster an expectant mother.
It takes a special person to adopt a pet who has issues. You notice the staff doesn’t always gush over all of them, calling them perfect.
For years my husband and I grappled with the question to” foster or not to foster?” terrified that if we brought animals into our home to foster, they would never return to the humane society.
What does it really mean to foster? To strengthen and nurture. We rely on people to do this for us, for our children and within the community.
