Hear Our Story: Allegra and Joseph
Allegra and Joseph have a 19-year-old daughter and they wouldn’t have it any other way.
“We became foster parents to Jamie because we wanted her to have permanency in her life,” Joseph said. “Now, we couldn’t imagine our lives without her. She’s enriched our lives and taught us so much. We will always think of her as our daughter.”
As a young couple with a toddler, Allegra and Richard didn’t plan to become foster parents. They had the same fears that many have when they consider foster parenting. Now, they champion the belief that anyone with a commitment and love for others can change the life of a foster youth.
“There’s a lot of kids that need homes,” Joseph said. “There needs to be more people willing to open up their homes and their lives to help teens.”
