To the Editor:
As many of us consider what New Year's resolutions we'll be making in 2012, I'd like to encourage community members to add one resolution to their list - consider what you can do to support youth in foster care this year.
Children enter foster care through no fault of their own, but often because of circumstances related to abuse and neglect. Every child deserves to be connected to a caring and supportive adult.
You might be surprised at how much you, your family, your business, your church or community organization has to offer, either by opening your home or helping raise awareness in our community.
