How Fostering Changed My Life:
The Untold Story by Simon Welchlin
In the fall of 2004, I took my very first breath of fresh air. My feet touched the ground and I searched effortlessly for my mother for food. In those first few months of life, I was surrounded by my litter-mates and my mother. I learned how to play, snuggle, and bark. Then the day came in late fall when I was shipped off to a family.
