Kid Connection: Fostering a Child

Over the last year we’ve introduced you to several school-aged children here in Minnesota looking for an adoptive family. We’ve also met kids who have found their forever family. But we haven’t really touched on another huge need in the system. That need is foster families. A Champlin family is urging people to consider opening their home to kids in their greatest time of need, for a roof over their head and love. In this Kid Connection, TCL Reporter Kelli Hanson introduces us to the Massenburgs, a family who has opened their home to more than 100 children over the last 9 years.

Learn more from adoptive families on July 27th at the Summertime by George music festival in St. Cloud. County and private agency staff will also be there to answer questions about foster care and adoption. The event is free and runs from 5-9pm.
