FOSTER PALM BEACH
Foster Truths... Question: What happens when a White mom fosters a Black daughter and has no idea how to maintain her daughter's hair?
Last week we were honored to participate in Grace Fellowship - "A Church for all Nations" Take Heart 2019 event. The stories shared by the foster parents were impactful because the speakers were so transparent about their experiences. And the topics we discussed were not easy.
Question: What happens when a White mom fosters a Black daughter and has no idea how to maintain her daughter's hair?
Answer: Community steps in, envelopes that family in love and understanding, and works to bridge the gap. That is what Tamekia Swint of Illinois-based Styles 4 Kidz did. Heart warming endeavor!
