Hi there! My name is Dr. Teresa Scott. I am an advocate for children, Foster Children to be very specific. I am a long-time fan, and am writing today because I am hopeful that this will inspire others to come forward and help. Did you know in Michigan there are over 16500 children in Foster Care? In my county (Kalamazoo) there are over 650 in care. I am reaching out to KRC not for money, not for accolade, but to ask for support as we recruit families to care for our states most vulnerable children!
“Somewhere you got a brother, sister, friend, grandmother, niece or nephew
Just dying to be with you
You know there's someone out there who unconditionally, religiously, loves you
So just hold on 'cause you know it's true
And if you can take the pain
And you can withstand anything, and one day
Stand hand in hand with the truth”
Many of the lyrics point to the fact that YOU truly, care deeply about the impact we human beings have on each other! Pointing out the obvious is not what I am here to do; instead I am asking that anyone who is reading this would take a moment and think of how they could positively impact a child in foster cares life by becoming a foster parent!
I was a foster child, maybe that is why I relate to this…I hope someone out in KRC land replies, especially if you live in Michigan. Please do not hesitate to contact me. I am hopeful “the man himself” will contact me! I have so many crazy stupid idea of how to build this “partnership.”
Thank you for having a site where people can contact one another with ideas, and the willingness to listen and respond—not many do!
