Every one of our 14 Upbring Foster In Texas (FIT) offices is sure they have the best foster parents in Texas – Area Director Oscar Guerra, and all of the FIT staff in Laredo, decided to make that proclamation official. During a recent Foster Parent Appreciation Luncheon, FIT presented each foster parent/family with a trophy, individually laser-etched with their name and “Best Foster Parent.”
As a child’s guardian angel, the foster parent advocates for their best interests and promotes the healing and resilience children need during their stay in foster care. “The winged angel trophies are small mementoes of our appreciation,” said Oscar Guerra. “They represent the role foster parents play as the guardian angels of their foster children – foster parents provide the children with love, guidance, support and protection.”
The appreciation luncheon, sponsored by the Lamar Bruni Vergara Grant, was held at Tony Roma’s in Laredo.
