Caring for migrant children who need a home

Tori and Billy's foster care story

White male foster parent tosses beach ball to migrant girl

Tori and Billy first heard about short-term immigrant foster care—or “transitional” foster care—when a Bethany staff member spoke to their church. They felt called to open their own home to migrant children who had entered the US without a parent. In this video, Tori and Billy talk about the surprises, challenges, and joys of their experience as foster parents—like how they learned to overcome a language barrier using an app on their phones. They also talk about how Bethany has supported them through their experience, and their advice to other people who are considering becoming foster parents for migrant children.
