Tells the story of a family beginning the process of becoming a foster family, taking prep classes, and learning to set realistic expectations for fostering. Soon, a 2-year-old boy named Matthew needed a family and was placed with the foster family through Cornerstones of Care. One year and 1 day later, Matthew was adopted by his new family. The foster mother says they were prepared to wait a long time for the right match to come along, but it happened right away. She sends the message to other foster caregivers that the opportunity is there, and you never know what could happen! This Real-Life Story was developed as part of National Foster Care Month 2017.
