I'm the parent of a volunteer and have heard wonderful stories of her experiences and the great work the organization does. Our local newspaper has also covered the organization and its intense efforts to find a forever home for each child. Furthermore, as a teacher, I recognize the importance to a child of a stable home environment.

The most important gift we can give our Children is a loving, safe environment in which to live and grow.

People who will spend their lives finding homes for Children in need of this loving, safe environment is one of the greatest gifts God has given us.

The Foster & Adoptive Care
Coalition does this in spades. Creating the "Forever Family"...For Every Child… A Place to Call Home.

God Bless them.

Although I have not fostered or adopted, I support this agency because I know they really do what they say. They have been recognized nationally for their work, and it seems to me; what could be more important than finding a home for a child? That's what they do, among a lot of other things. Friendly staff, just a great charity to donate to.

This is in regards to the little wishes for Christmas from the channel 5 "a place to call home" program. I intended to give little wishes to a couple of children in the name of people I know. I went through the process for one child age 17 because I know these kids are aged out and thought giving to older children would make them know someone cared.

I then picked another child wanting the same thing, went through the process and was told there were no more of this item available. When I tried to review my donation I found the first child had been deleted and this would go to the second child.

Not only did this mess up my Christmas giving (I didn't know who and if they would get an acknowledgement ) but my heart broke knowing these and probably others would think no one cared enough to pick and get them a gift and not understand it was a lack of resources.

I'm sure a lot goes in to arranging this program, but wanted to let you know so perhaps this disappointment. Thanks, Kathy Burns

Try to make enough gifts available to cover all children's wishes. If not available perhaps have a second choice

The little wishes campaign conducted year round is a chance for people who are not in the market to adopt a child but do want to help a child in need by granting "little wishes" that the child has requested.
This program serves the St. Louis Metro area and it wonderful to be able to help
children who cannot help themselves.

Foster Care Coalition of Greater STL does a great service to the STL community by providing much needed counseling to both the children and to the prospective foster parents. FCC also found a way of fullfilling the needs and hopes of the children in the form of "Little Gifts". My wife and I fully support the FCC of Greater STL and we know that our donations get used for the greater good of the children who are in the greatest need.

I have made the Foster Care Coalition of Greater St. Louis my charity of choice. They run a great operation, provide a very necessary service to the St. Louis Community and they go out of their way to find new and different ways to fund their operation. Whenever I give a gift of charity, I make sure that the Foster Care Colition gets not only my dollar but also my friends. They are very responsive to my questions, concerns and give me almost instant recognition for my gifts.
Thanks you for providing me this forum to voice my views.

Incredible group of hard working people. Whether it is staying up to midnight for multiple nights making sure every child has a gift, to developing Extreme Recruitment so children can find family members, and a new home ! innovative, dedicated and extremely caring, you won't find a better group of children's advocates.

Have the State realize that the funding of this organization and its programs actually SAVES the State money over the long term.
