Caregiver Spotlight: Kidd - Tiny Moments Count

Throughout the month of May, we introduced you to some of our caregivers in celebration of National Foster Care Month and as part of our ongoing 25 by 25 campaign to raise awareness for our area's need for more foster homes. Remember, we are all recruiters! This week, meet Ashley Kidd, a foster parent from St. Lucie County and the communications coordinator for the Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County.

What's the most inspiring part of being a caregiver? The most inspiring part are those little moments when you're reminded that what you are doing makes a difference. It might be the first time your foster child has gone to a baseball game, or the first birthday party that they've been able to invite friends to, but knowing that it's building a memory that they will have for a long time is meaningful. I hope that they remember those things forever. My favorite days are the ones when they tell you that it was the best day ever.

What part of being a caregiver is your favorite? Because this is our first parenting experience, I have to say that my favorite part is watching my husband be a dad. I love watching the kids laugh and play with him.

What is your least favorite household chore? Bathrooms! God bless our cleaning lady.

If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please call (772) 403-8176 X 1145 to get started.
