Foster Parents Day

We the undersigned here by request that the members of Congress vote on HR 179. Further we request the President of the United States of America honor Foster Parents across this great nation with a day of honor (possibly the 4th Sunday of May) for their great sacrifice in providing homes to these children in need of a warm and caring place. A day of honor for those families who open their homes and hearts to children whose families are in crisis, play a vital role in helping children heal and in launching those children into successful adulthood. A day of honor that would work to increase public awareness of the needs of the 500,000 children in foster care. A day of honor for those families who are able to serve a role as foster parents should be wholeheartedly encouraged to do so. This petition will be mailed to members of Congress and/or the President on July 1, 2007. If you support a simple day of honor for foster parents, please add your signature below.
