PARIS, TX-- Lamar County residents came out to the Department of Human Services building Thursday night to learn more about changing the lives of young children, by becoming foster parents.
The informational meeting is the first step a family needs to go through before becoming foster parents..
With over 50 children in need of a foster home in Lamar County, CPS worker Aubrey Craft says they don't have many families coming forward to foster, but she says little do they know, it's a life changing experience.
""Seeing the change in them and seeing them open up, said Aubrey Craft. "They come from abuse and neglect situations and you would never think those wouldn't impact these children as much as it does."
