Fostering and adoption event uniting parents across Abilene

ABILENE, Texas (KRBC) - Fostering and adopting a child can be a challenge to take, but some families take them head on!

Agencies across the Big Country are teaming up for a night of fun, Saturday.

One foster and adoptive mother in Abilene noticed a need while being an educator.

"Being a teacher as well, and educator, I see a lot of the kids in school and knowing some friends who are were foster families, we decided we wanted to provide a stable and loving home for kids that needed a place to be," said foster/adoptive Lee Rood.

Families like Rood's will be celebrating foster and adoptive care at Primetime tomorrow, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

"Finding people that do what you do. It might be with New Horizons, that they're with Pathways, that they're with Arrow or another agency, but they still share that same passion, which then again, hopefully creates more resources," foster family specialist for World for Children, Mica Algood said.

The event is free to foster parents, but you must RSVP ahead of time.
