    Leigh Esau was born in Lincoln, NE and spent the first six years of her life as a foster child. She was adopted and raised in Colorado, but Nebraska and the issues in foster care remained close to her heart. Leigh married and returned to Nebraska with her husband, Patrick, to raise their two sons. From 2000-2002 Leigh worked with teens in a group home which inspired the Esaus to pursue their foster parenting license. Through the next several years Leigh and Patrick fostered over 20 youth who benefitted from their stable and loving home. The Esaus were blessed to complete their family by adopting four of their foster children.

    Through her foster parenting experiences, Leigh realized the need for foster children to receive good quality clothing of their own and the need foster parents have for support. Out of this realization, the Foster CARE Closet was born. Since its opening in 2006, The Foster CARE Closet has served over 10,000 children and families in Nebraska by providing them with needed clothes and supplies. The Foster CARE Closet has been recognized in the State of Nebraska as a 2012 Charity Integrity Award winner from the Better Business Bureau and nationally as an Angel in Adoption award winner. When Leigh isn't busy advocating for the needs of foster children, you can find her spending time with her kids, cheering on Husker athletics, or riding her ElliptiGO bike.

    Adoption & Foster Care

    in Parents

    Tonight's episode is about adoption and foster care. What is it like be a foster parent and what is it like as a child to grow up in a foster home? Millions of children experience foster care every year and from reports, there are a lot of unpleasant experiences.
    On the flipside, there are lots of families who adopt with great results and some people would never even be able to tell that the child was adopted. These are amongst the fortunate adoptees as dozens of horriffic cases are reported daily.
    Tonight we want to speak on these cases and try to grasp the concept of what it's like to be an adoptee and what it's like to be a foster parent. So we welcome you to join us in another discussion here at It's Real Talk Radio. You can call the live show by dialing (347) 838-9540 and air time is 9PM EST.
