Wanda is a foster parent with Northeast Parent and Child Society. She makes a difference everyday as she cares for children that need a safe and loving home to live in. She has been fostering a very medically fragile child for the past 4 years. She is fully committed and dedicated to this child and her life revolves around one hospitalization after the other as this child needs frequent hospital stays in New York and Massachusetts. She treats this child as if he were her own and there is nothing she would deny him. He is freed for adoption and Wanda will be adopting him soon to give him a forever home. Wanda is an inspiration to me and to others because she cares so much for children and has devoted herself to making such a positive difference in the lives of the children she has cared for over the years. Wanda is my hero!
