LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Next month marks National Foster Parent month. A Bair Foundation spokesman in Lufkin said the need is greater than ever for foster parents. The Bair Foundation is a Christian foster care ministry dedicated to the mission of providing a safe and loving home to children. That mission is becoming more of a challenge due to the increasing amount of children in need of a foster home.
"It's terrifying to think these kids are going to have to go to a home where they're not as loved or as wanted," said Angie Acosta, Foster Care Parent Recruiter at The Bair Foundation.
