US: Big Changes Needed to Boost America’s Foster Home Network (Opinion)
Chronicle of Social Change – August 21, 2017

The image of a loving home with a stay-at-home mom is a fantasy for most families today. In addition, an increasing number of families contain only one adult with one income – many of whom are frequently struggling financially. As a result, fewer families are able to offer their homes and hearts as foster parents.
