According to veteran foster parent Lisa Dawley, “I love being a foster mom and feel that next to being a mother, it is the most rewarding thing someone can do. Seeing children happy, laughing, playing and running around the house is so rewarding. Being able to watch a child go from being scared and crying to smiling, happy and laughing is a great thing.” For former foster child Arlinda Peacock, her positive experience with the program dramatically impacted the direction of her life. She notes, “My foster family helped guide me because I needed love. I didn’t know what love was until I met the family that was willing to give up everything for me.” For more information or to fill out a Commit to Know More card, visit the website www.FosterOneSD.org. sfw

“I’m sure everyone can think of someone or a family who would be a great foster family. Please encourage them and direct them to the FosterOne website. We need a variety of foster families to fit a variety of foster children who need love and limits while their parents work on their struggles. Please help spread the word.” - South Dakota First Lady Linda Daugaard SIOUX FALLS WOMAN • februar y/m a r c h 2 0 1 4
