There are 420,000 foster care children in the United States, and 10,000 of those are in the state of Washington. When I became the 2011 Miss Washington Jr. Pre Teen Queen, I was excited to use my title to bring more awareness to this issue. I was honored to participate in two amazing events in my short reign. I first participated in an event with City Ministries Child Placement Agency and the Rose Hill Cottages foster care community. I helped with crafts, read stories, played games and handed out books and stuffed animals to all the kids! What a blast! Secondly, I volunteered at the "Wait No More" conference that was an effort to get permanent placement for over a 1000 legally free kids into foster-adoptive families. I greeted over 700 people at the doors and loved participating in an event that changed the lives of hundreds of kids!
