Many in our culture are under the misconception that fostering and adoption are only for the wealthy.  This idea was perpetuated  and reinforced by the recent hit-TV show Dream Dad, where a wealthy, elite Filipino family fostered and eventually adopted an orphan child.  The show was an amazing tug-at-the-heart-strings rags to riches ratings success… as if money were the greatest need of our orphans.

The greatest needs of any orphan are the needs of the heart:  a loving home that can provide a nurturing and caring environment.

You need a full heart, not a full wallet to be a successful foster parent.

If you’re considering foster care or adoption at the Home For Good Foundation, we’d love to help.  We can assist you with your government required licensing and so much more.  Contact us to schedule an appointment online at HFGF.org or at 09175699164.
