American Dream Adoptive Families Honored With Day of Fun On Saturday Oct. 23, a day to honor Meriwether's Resource Foster and Adoptive Families, was held at Butts Mill Farm in Pine Mountain. The resource families, children in fos- : ter care and those adopted, along with the staff of Meriwether DFCS, participated in an outing filled with a day of food and fun on the farm. The families enjoyed going on hayrides, walking through the petting zoo, playing miniature golf, and sliding down the Super Tiger Slide. The famih'es were commended for their time, energy, and the love they share with the children who are m tbe care. The families have worked diligently in partnership with the children's birth fami- lies and agency to provide a safe and stable environment for the children. Meriwether County is in need of other dedicated individuals like these people to provide foster and adoptive placements for children who cannot remain in their home due to abuse or neglect. To become a Resource Foster or Adoptive Parent a person may be married or single, but must be a mature, responsi- ble adult with stable income and a willing- ness to make a commitment to the children and their families to work toward the goal of reunification or adoption.
