I’m writing a book (and have three publisher appointments this month).
a. present an accurate view of foster care
b. inspire people to step up and foster (or if they can’t foster, to support those who do)
I’d appreciate your input. Comment below to answer all or some of the questions (or write whatever you want). Be as detailed or as brief as you like. Alternately, send your response to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d rather.
Also, if you’re willing, please repost this to your blog or other outlet directing people back to https://hypervigilant.org to post answers so I can collect them.
THANKS for your help!
