"Thank you so much for all you do for kiddos in Foster Care!! I'm so happy to have found your page. My husband & I are parents to five amazing kiddos - four we have adopted through Foster Care and one who we are now in the process of adopting who is also through the Foster Care. All of them have equally heartbreaking stories and challenges. We are so grateful to organizations like you who help give these kiddos some dignity and happiness during such difficult times. It meant so much to our older children when they received an actual bag to hold their clothes. My son said he felt like trash when what few belongings he did have were treated like trash. He is a Boy Scout and plans to have his troop help provide bags for foster kiddos her in Las Vegas, Nevada. Thank you so much!! This video is from our twins adoption day back in January. The following month we added our 2 year old sweet little girl Adopting through foster care was the best decision we ever made!" - Shirley Aldrich
