Global World goals

There are 17 world goals. The Global goals are a set of 17 commitments made by 193 world leaders to end extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.

Foster care and Adoption is something that is close and dear to my heart. A little bit about myself, is I am a mom of four teenagers. My husband and I were married in 2004 and quickly learned we wanted a family. It didn’t happen as soon as we wanted. We did 5 years of infertility medicine and treatments. When we learned that it wasn’t going to happen, we looked into becoming foster parents. We were foster parents for 10 years, within those years we adopted 4 children. Thnakful and Blessed for many, many memories made and the journey we continue to call LIFE!
