The United States may be one of the most privileged nations in the world, but there are still over 130,000 children in foster care eagerly awaiting a stable home, loving parents, and a chance at happiness.

Reading this is a little like reading about how a rich kid had to get a used Honda instead of a new Mercedes.
The story says:
“The kids had no idea Chet was coming home… So fun! We had a rough year; so thankful to have him back with us!”
