Many foster children and adopted children have grown to be successful citizens, parents, employees and community leaders. They have reached success because their foster and adoptive parents believed in their potential and did not give up, even when things got tough. Children need parents who have faith in themselves and in children, who believe they can make a difference in a child's life, who are willing to take a chance and who are willing to learn. Parenting is a tough job. It can take a while to see the rewards, but there is nothing more satisfying than seeing those rewards. There is no other endeavor with such long lasting effects.
