Local foster parents are transforming lives— and thwarting sex trafficking in Sacramento
Am I equipped to be a foster parent? Is it the right decision? These are questions most people face when they consider foster parenting. The Morgan* family did. In fact, when Melissa’s husband, Don, brought it up, her first reaction was, “I can’t be a foster parent.” Then the local couple began doing research; they attended meetings at Koinonia Family Services, a nonprofit, private foster care and adoption agency, and Melissa became open to the idea. Not long after, they got a call about three siblings who needed immediate placement—two brothers (one a teenager) and their baby sister.
