Public Service Announcement
Foster Parent Appreciation Month
Governor O'Malley: This is Governor Martin O'Malley.
Mrs. O'Malley: And I'm Katie O'Malley.
Governor O'Malley: And this is Foster Parent Appreciation Month in Maryland. And we wanted to say thank you; thank you to the 3,000 Maryland parents who open their homes for kids that are in need of a safe and temporary haven.
Mrs. O'Malley: Foster parents bring a sense of security and stability in what can be a difficult time for a young child, and that's no small feat.
Governor O'Malley: There are over 9,000 children who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to live with their birth parents.
Mrs. O'Malley: We know that children do better in family environments, so that's why we're asking more people to step up and become foster parents.
Governor O'Malley: Won't you consider becoming a foster parent? For more information, please call 1-888-MD-KIDS2. That's 1-888-635-4372. We need you to call today.
