Scottsburg, IN – NYAP Hosts a banquet for our dedicated Foster Parents
On May 22nd the Indiana SE region hosted a foster parent banquet for their dedicated foster parents. The foster parents were able to drop their foster children and their own children off at the NYAP office and then enjoy a catered dinner at the Coffee House right down the street from the office.
NYAP employees and one of the local CASA workers watched and entertained the children in the office while the foster parents relaxed, ate dinner and listened to a motivational speaker for two hours. There were 40 kids in the office and 40 foster parents in attendance for the special event. Foster parents were presented certificates for years of service and a jar of M&M’s with the following saying:
Green is for the inspiration you give me each day.
Blue is for the patience in showing me the way.
Orange is for the warmth and caring style.
Yellow is for the way you always make me smile.
Red is for my life that you have touched this year.
You’re a very special foster parent just like the jar, that’s clear.
You place knowledge in our children’s hands and melt into their hearts and lives forever.
You’re a “Magnificent and Marvelous” foster parent.
Thank you for being their M & M.
