GREAT FALLS – Youth Dynamics reports that every year almost 4,000 Montana children enter foster care due to abuse, neglect and other serious difficulties within their families.
“There’s nowhere near that many homes,” Youth Dynamics Family Development Coordinator Bethany Grohs said.
Grohs says there is a need for more couples to become foster parents, “I would encourage anyone who’s thought about doing it to just do it.”
Grohs works to find families and license them to be approved foster parents.
She says two of the biggest concerns future parents have are behavioral issues and they are afraid of being too attached.
