Meet Lilly, Brandon and Xavier.

All three of these siblings were brought together through Gateway Longview's Foster Care & Adoption program. Xazier's (6) adoption story impacted big-sister Lilly (7) so much, she decided to write about it, from her point of view.

“Even in this time, the need for foster parent remains great. There are over 1,000 children apart of the Erie county foster care system alone. Even though many of us are home, we can still make a difference and take steps towards changing the lives of these children.”

Maria is wonderful !

Meet Maria, a mother of four who decided to become a foster parent in order to bring a welcoming environment to children who need it most. Having fostered 4 children since becoming certified last year, Maria credits her success as a foster parent with her knack for helping children feel safe, comfortable, and at ease.

“It is my honor to give children a place they can feel ‘at home’ while their parents are getting the help they need. I am privileged and proud to help families in my community this way.” #CelebrateMom #GatewayLongviewFosterCare

I wanted to share the first episode of a new foster care and adoption series I'm creating called Beyond Biological. https://www.facebook.com/kismetadoptionawareness/videos/309335469791666/
Help support the needs of kids in foster care, please consider joining the #forget-me-not hate campaign and invite your friends, too!! |https://www.facebook.com/events/284663722394252/ Please share!
Congratulations to everyone. What adorable children.😊
I lived in a foster home back in 1954 and 1955, I was 6 years old when I was met at a rooming home where I lived in one room with 2 brothers and two sisters, mother and (name) father. We shared a bathroom down the hall with the other roomers, alcoholics and perverts. No beds, not stove and no refridgerator!! We weren't told by our parents we were going to be taken and they didn't have enough guts to be there when we were taken away. As scary as it was, it was two of the best years of my childhood!
