Open letter to foster parents

   May is National Foster Child Month. CHAP foster parents are an awesome group. No wonder there is such warmth behind the thanks this spring brings your way.

   Your special kindness brings such joy to children and makes their days and their lives. The staff at CHAP realizes just how sensitive and thoughtful you are--always willing to give of yourselves.

   It is easy to say "thank you" for all your dedication to abused and neglected children, and yet it is hard to find words warm enough to thank each one of you. The world is a much better place because of CHAP Foster Parents.

   With a heartfelt thanks to all of you...

Fran Barnett, CHAP Foster Care Program, Compass Health
