I have six children and fifteen grandchildren. My children have left the house and are making their own lives. I filled my days with working eight to sixteen hours a day. When I retired, I realized that my house was way too quiet. I had thought about Foster Care for a while. A friend told me about North Star. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to assist when needed. North Star cares about their resource parents and the children. My husband and I have had many children in our home over the past three and half years. Some have been challenging. These children come from homes with some form of abuse. These children need love, understanding and stability. I feel fulfilled knowing that I am able to provide a loving, stable, and safe home for these children. I wish I had became a resource parent years ago.

I am a resource parent along with my daughter at North Star Family Center. Our love has always been with children. I had three of my own and was blessed with raising another, the daughter of a family friend. After retirement, I felt lost until I was introduced to resource parenting. This has been a blessing to me, as well I hope, to the children we have fostered.
Through this I have been blessed with a 5 year old boy who we are adopting. I wish I would have thought of fostering children a long time ago. My life is full and I feel blessed by all the children. I thank God for this opportunity.
At North Star Family Center we provide professional services and a caring environment where the healing process begins. The money donated will help us provide school supplies, scholarships, recreational activities and family events. In advance, we appreciate the support of our community. Thank you!
