43 Forum: Foster care and adoption

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

On behalf of an estimated 750,000 children in foster care across in America, May is national foster care month.

In greater Cleveland, there are 3,000 kids needing out of home care and adoptive families.

Rhonda Greer, an adoptive and family resource supervisor from Christian Children's Home of Ohio, and Krista Tokarz, a foster care parent speak with Harry Boomer about foster care, adoption, and children during his 43 Forum.  

Foster parents and adoptive parents undergo training about child development and the process it takes to care for kids suffering from abuse or neglect.  Through training foster and adoptive parents find creative ways for kids to build trust in them.
