Voices from Foster Care: Carla Saulter - Amara

Voices from Foster Care: Carla Saulter

In honor of Foster Care Awareness Month and Mother’s Day, we are sharing the stories of seven amazing parents through foster care. These parents inspire and challenge us! We are so grateful for their dedication and love.

This Mothers Day article, from Seattle’s Child Magazine, is adapted from an interview with Carla Saulter – member of Amara’s African American Outreach Advisory Council, foster care advocate, and former foster parent. We are so grateful for Carla’s commitment to African American kids in foster care.
