Eight IPPI foster parents recently shared their experiences as family care givers with those considering fostering at IPPI’s Permanency Services Foster Care team’s Fostering and Adoption Open House, hosted by Dperv’s Top BBQ in Hamden, CT.

This seasoned group of foster parents collectively represented over 100 years of experience fostering youth in Connecticut. When foster parents were asked why they open their hearts and homes to foster youth, the overwhelming response was knowing they were making a difference. They witnessed the real life transformation and positive impact on the youth in their care.

One foster father shared that he proudly watched his foster son, an honor student, graduate college, start a career, and a family. He was deeply touched and honored when this young man named his first born child, a boy, after his foster father.

It was a great evening of positivity and celebration and we couldn’t be happier that two of the attendees have started the application process to become foster parents.
