"One child led to 132": The story of two amazing foster parents

"One child led to 132": The story of two amazing foster parents

As a father of 4, I know firsthand how challenging it is to raise children. However, as any parent will tell you, I would not have it any other way.

There are parents ... and then there are FOSTER PARENTS. I have the utmost respect for people who dedicate their lives to to helping raise children -- children who either do not have parents or have parents unable to care for them.

Susan and Tom Vrenios and her husband are two such individuals. Over the past 10 years, they've fostered 132 children.

132.

Please read the full story, but I leave you with this quote.

"We had no children of our own, and we felt very blessed by life. We wanted to give back, so we decided to become foster parents, and one child led to 132," Vrenios said.
