RICHMOND, Va. – More than a dozen local foster care and adoption agencies hosted a free informational fair for potential foster families as part of Foster Care Awareness Month.

There are more than 5,300 children in the foster care system in Virginia.

The fair served as an opportunity to meet face-to-face with the representatives who work with foster children every day.

Organizers said their goal is to give families the skills they need to provide the love and support foster children need.
