Kiwanis November 19 Meeting Program: Susan Fountain spoke on her experiences as a foster parent.
Susan Fountain (left) was introduced by Caesar Sweitzer at the November 19 Kiwanis Breakfast meeting held at Charlie Brown’s in Chatham Twp. In three years, Susan has served as foster parent for four different babies for periods ranging from one day to two months. Susan has three daughters and lives with them and her husband Tom in Chatham.
She addressed several items: why she served as foster parent, what concerns she had going into the process, what screening and training were needed to be eligible, how the program actually works and quality of the experience.
Susan described how her family received much more than they gave in carrying for their foster children. The audience enthusiastically applauded her spellbinding program.
