My Story

Elise M Schuster is an author, an advocate for foster families, and a speaker for kids in care. She believes foster families should be heard, validated for all they do, and granted rights to speak for the children they spend so much time with. Elise shares ways to bridge the gap between all team members involved in the care of children. Through trials and triumphs, she has learned many skills to work with the system and achieve positive results. Elise uses her years of experience as a mom of two birth children, nine adopted children, and forty-nine children in care to help others understand being a foster parent is an honor and an amazing call to serve. Her passion is to help others embrace the idea of fostering and make a difference in the life of children that need them.
