May is #NationalFosterCareMonth and our Therapeutic Foster team has shared the following story of an Astor foster parent. Sophia J. has been a foster parent since 2017 and has worked primarily with teens. Sophia says she is happy working with young adults and appreciates the opportunity to help kids who are gay or transgender and are struggling with issues relating to their sexuality. Sophia thinks it is vital for foster parents to treat all children in the home, just as they would their birth children. One way Sophia has honored this, is by taking all the kids placed in her home on vacation. She is hoping to retire from her full-time job soon, so she may devote even more time to fostering kids in need. Sophia also expressed gratitude for the close working relationship she has Astor staff. It is important for all kids to know it is a team effort between all involved adults to make certain they receive the best care.
