Art fair gives voice to older foster children looking for homes

Michigan has just over 13,000 children in its foster care system.  Most are living in  licensed homes, but many live with relatives who are either licensed or unlicensed to provide care.  Still others are in child caring institutions.

May is National Foster Care Month and as part of that observance, one mid-Michigan agency is sponsoring an exhibition of artwork made by foster care children in search of adoption.

Tamra Johnson is the community relations and marketing director for St. Vincent Catholic Charities in Lansing and Whitney Banks, the agency’s adoption recruiter. They joined us to talk about the event. 

Kevin Lavery is a general assignment reporter and occasional local host for Morning Edition and All Things considered.
