Young, Single and Adopting

By Focus on the Family Issue Analysts


Millennials are an asset to the foster care system.  This story by Focus on the Family shares the stories of several millennials that are fostering.  One is Rachel Mills, a 23-year-old Minnesotan, who saw the need several years ago and knew she couldn’t ignore it. They write "It didn’t matter to her that she was (and is) unmarried, young enough still to be on her parents’ insurance and without a college degree; she simply “knew that having a very young mom who tried her hardest would always beat having no one,” she tells Citizen."

The number of children in foster care in North Carolina is high.  Don't think that being a millennial means you can't foster, because you may be just the one a child in foster care needs!
