Single Foster Dad Kevin talks with Romayne Pollard about his experience as a queer dad parenting through the foster care system.
Becoming a Single Foster Dad
"It really takes a special person to be a single dad," said Romayne, who lives with his son in Chicago, Illinois. "I started out as a foster dad and had to deal with birth parents, birth grandparents, social workers and the inevitable questions of where was my wife!"
Being single is not a barrier to becoming a foster parent. In a 2020 article with GWK Romayne said that "he wished more men would set their fear aside and become dads if it's something they really want out of life."
In this video interview, Romayne and Kevin discuss their experiences navigating the foster care system as single queer dads. Watch the full video above.
