If you have some gently used clothes or toys you want to get rid of, the Foster Closet of Michigan, Livingston County is taking donations through May 31st. Click here for all the info. 

It sounds like they will be needing all they can get because there is a MAJOR shortage of Foster Parents here in Michigan. There are 13,500 kids waiting for homes and only around 6000 homes are ready for them. Read that sobering story by clicking here. 

The most common reason kids go into Foster care is abuse and neglect.

It's something that runs through my mind all the time. Who will my Nugget have after I am gone? She is just so young and in the terrible 2 stage, we couldn't even consider it right now... but down the road a bit, it will likely be an option for us.

If you are in a place where you could save the life of another, please consider becoming a Foster parent. For more information on becoming a Foster parent, click here.
