Foster Care: Rita and Sharita
Meet ordinary people who are making our state a better place for children.
Rita and Sharita, both social workers, became foster parents four years ago with the goal to adopt. They have a six-year-old son who they adopted and a two-year-old who is in foster care. Rita and Sharita work together to solve problems and are strong advocates for making sure all the children in their home receive the services they need to grow and thrive. They also remain close with their son’s biological siblings and the families of children they have cared for through foster care.
