GRANDparent of the Year. Any member of the American public can
nominate a GRANDparent of the Year. Nominating forms are available in

-- OPENING YOUR HEART AND YOUR HOME TO A CHILD IN NEED
Got extra love to share? Think about creating a family or expanding
the one you've got. May is also National Foster Care Awareness Month
and more than 600,000 children nationwide currently need foster homes.
Unfortunately, the number of foster homes falls far short of meeting
the need. A supportive, caring foster family can give kids a
sanctuary where they can be safe, heal from their emotional scars, and
experience a sense of home and family they may never have had before.
The face of foster care is changing, with older children, youngsters
with disabilities, and kids who not only need a loving home but help
to overcome crises such as abuse. To learn more about foster care and
adoption, or find events in your area, go to http://www.kidspeace.org ,
