At the age of 21--the minimum age of a foster parent in her state--Lauren applied to be a foster mom. She then completed the necessary extra training to take in only kids with traditional special needs. A young, single mom who just started her career, Lauren didn't let anything stop her from fostering.
This episode was recorded before Lauren received any placements. In this episode she talks with Caitlin about why she wanted to foster, why she wanted children with special needs, and why she didn't wait for the "right time" to apply.
