Webinar: A Foster Care Journey: Jason & Eric 05/26/21
Being a foster parent can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have! But, like any path to fatherhood, it comes with its own set of challenges and considerations. In this webinar, you will hear from current foster dads on their experience as well as the organization that helped them fulfill their dreams.

In 2013, the couple started reaching out to foster family and adoption agencies. They were quickly drawn to one agency in particular, Extraordinary Families, given its long history supporting the gay and lesbian community. As a same-sex couple, they said they felt it was important to work with an organization – and hopefully an ally – that had a history of dealing with lesbian and gay parenting. 

“Thankfully, in my initial days of research, I found an agency that looked promising,” Jason said.
