31 Days of Foster Care Wishes: Raymond and Sonja (Day 10)
Raymond and Sonja - Mecosta County
"Raymond and Sonja have been foster parents since 2016. They were initially licensed for relative care at a time when they were planning toward retirement. Working full-time and providing care for 4 children while getting licensed, they learned about the need for more non-relative foster homes. Raymond and Sonja changed their license to provide non-relative foster care and have accepted placement of 3 additional children.
Raymond and Sonja are fierce advocates for the children, including the children's biological parents. They offer healthy advice to parents while maintaining a relationship of respect and trust. They have mentored newly licensed or struggling foster parents, undoubtedly contributing to the preservation of placements."
