Would you like to give a child a loving home? There are children right here in our area that need your help. To coincide with National Adoption Month, we are launching Forever Families to find loving people to open up their homes and become a foster parent. Last week, we talked with Ashley Gipson with the Texas Department Family and Protective Services.

Wow! Did you know that there are 130 children in Bowie county alone that need foster care and only 10 foster homes? These kids desperately need your help!

You can learn more about foster care and adoption at a meeting Thursday, November 15 at 5:30 p.m. at the Texarkana Public Library located at 600 W. 3rd Street. You can also call Ashley Gipson at 903-533-4109 or email her!
