Being a foster parent to a kid in need is a tough but rewarding job. When you realize you are making a difference in their life, you just can’t help but feel peace and happiness. Just ask Kari Lewis. This young mom from Portland, OR has looked after a few foster children. She says “foster care has been one of the hardest but absolute best things that we’ve ever done.”

When a new kid comes into your life, you just can’t help but feel anxious for them. There is no way to know if they will adjust well into your family. Kari’s mother, Sandi Swiridoff, has experienced this nervousness many times. According to her, being a foster grandma to the children her daughter brings into her home is a challenging job.

Some years ago, Sandi adopted an Australian Labradoodle for a change. She named him Reagan. When the pooch turned 11 months old, Kari became a foster mom to an 11 month old boy named Buddy.
