RUDY TOLD SANTA HE WANTS A GOOD MOM AND A GOOD DAD
Just last week, as over 500 foster children were hosted for a day of fun, Rudy visited with Santa and Mrs. Claus in Santa’s Toy Shop. He left after telling Santa what he wanted, and then came back in, quieter and more thoughtful this time. “What I really want, and I didn’t tell you, is a GOOD mom and a GOOD dad. That’s what I really want for Christmas!”
Rudy lives in a group home with six other children. He will have his Thanksgiving and Christmas celebration with his group home manager, and a house supervisor. They will celebrate with the other six boys and girls living there who have also been severely abused and neglected. These precious foster children can’t go home for the holidays, there is no safe place to go.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT FOSTER CHILDREN
There are just about as many girls as there are boys in foster care. The majority of the children in foster care are Caucasian, followed by African American, and then Hispanic children. The average age is eight years old, and 11% are between 15 and 17 years of age, still hoping and praying for a family to love them! They spend an average of almost three years in foster care. Almost all of these precious children moving from foster family to group home to yet another group home without the stability of a permanent home. Because of this instability, many of them perform poorly in school.
In conclusion, EVERY child deserves a safe, loving forever family to be home for the holidays with. Have you considered opening your heart and home to adopt foster children?
