We all know that parenting is one of the hardest yet most rewarding "jobs" out there. But what about foster parenting? As a foster parent, you're taking in children that have had tough situations, children that may challenge you, lie, and purposely be difficult as a result of the pain and/or instability they've often endured at such young ages. And then there's the foster care system that sometimes seems to create more challenges for these kids than it solves. The strength, committment and big heartedness required for foster parenting must be enormous--and the rewards likely are enormous as well. Meet Diane and Kristin Ponist, foster parents to five children, who blog about their experience on TheNextFamily.com. Tune in to hear about this lesbian family's experience caring for and loving some of our countries most vulnerable children and the difference they're making in these kids' lives.
