Not every kid gets the chance to have their parents nowadays. With the human population reaching its spike, problems have grown more than ever. You have people nowadays abandoning their babies in the middle of the street and then the social services take these poor souls and put them under special care until they can find a foster home. And there are a lot of good people out there, especially women who never hesitate to raise foster kids as their own. Even though they might not know the kid’s parents they will still be willing to raise it right.
And that gesture is just something that shows the good side of humanity. Because in this case, you are helping someone and not expecting to get anything back. You are just doing your best and hoping that maybe you will get repaid one day by God. But I bet that there is no greater feeling than being able to raise a foster kid since it must give you a great emotional boost. You are doing a mother’s job after all and you have the possibility of helping so much.
Did you know that in the United States about 700,000 kids have been in foster care? Raising a foster kid is not an easy situation especially because most of them come from difficult situations. Linda Herring who is now at the age of 75 years old has managed to raise 600 foster kids. And you have read that right. She has raised 600 foster kids during her life and she is so proud of it. This woman has a great heart and she does not hesitate to give love, especially to kids. She has done a fantastic job so far.
Linda is from Iowa and she has just recently retired from fostering children. But she is so glad that she decided to do so in the first place. It is probably from the great feeling that she got when she decided to raise those kids. She faced a lot of challenges raising those kids. She had a lot of ups and downs and a lot of problems in between but she always kept her composure and managed to find a solution for everything. Even when some kids had mental or physical issues she always did her best to make the kids feel special.
Now that she is old, everything is paying off as most of the kids that she raised visit her. That is the greatest gift of all. Raising the kids and having the chance to meet up with them again from now and then. Linda is a real superwoman.
let’s make sure we show everyone that her work is appreciated.
