Angels Foster Family works hard to match qualified foster parents with children in need. They also have a unique program for foster parents called Foster to Adopt. In this program couples have the chance to 'test run' adoption by becoming a child's foster parents. Angels Foster Family is a wonderful organization that rescues hundreds of babies and places hundreds more into loving families. Dr. Bastuba donates to Angels Foster Family every year - last year he even donated a car!
