Jul 8, 2022

There is often a negative or dim narrative that follows foster care. And, unfortunately, the beauty of the journey gets pushed to the side by a headline. In-spite of this, however, there is immense hope. 

Tori Peterson knows hope. In fact, it's her middle name. And as an adult, she (a former foster youth herself) has grown into a powerful advocate and voice for foster care, and in the process, has found an unshakable faith, the love of family, and a passion to impact foster care providers worldwide. You will LOVE her heart, and her story! 

A little more about Tori...
