“It was a 6-year journey that was a wild rollercoaster of emotions. My name is Lisa, I'm 54 and began my journey as a resource parent with Merakey’s Foster Care program 12 years ago as a single mom with two children. I quickly learned that as a foster parent, you sometimes have to expect the unexpected. Never in a million years did I think a phone call about a pregnant teenage girl needing a place to call home would change my life so drastically. Never did I think that fostering and mentoring this new teenage mother would turn into me fostering, raising, and loving her sweet baby girl.”
