Krystine Dykes and Carrie Ordónez’s Foster Care Story- StoryCorps

« Back to Blog

FosterMore is proud to partner with StoryCorps, a national project whose mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. They do this to remind us of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. With the help of StoryCorps, we will be featuring different foster care related stories on our blog from people who have shared their experience with the world.
