(WJBK) - May is National Foster Care Awareness Month. Right now, as many as a half a million children are in foster care in the United States.
Dr. John DeGarmo, an expert in the foster care field, joined us on The Nine to dispel some of the myths about foster care. You can hear from him in the video player above.
Dr. DeGarmo has written 'The Foster Parenting Manual', a technical guidebook to help foster parents get started.
He's also written a faith-based foster care book, 'Faith and Foster Care: How We Impact God's Kingdom."
