Bridgette Brown,
Boys Town Foster Parent (Bridgette and Theo Brown, Boys Town Foster Parents)

“When we started doing foster care 11 years ago, we had no idea how many children were out of their homes. We would go to the foster care website and there are just faces and faces and faces of children who need help. We advocate for others to become Boys Town Foster Parents because it’s such a great organization. They stand behind the children to help them meet their needs and they do the same supporting Foster Parents.”


When children have to be placed in foster care, they’re going through one of the scariest times of their lives. They want to be safe, and they want to know the people they’re living with are going to take care of them.

That’s what children find with Boys Town Foster Parents like Bridgette and Theo Brown. The Browns strive every day to ensure that the children they open their hearts to feel welcome, loved and part of the family. In fact, the couple recently adopted two siblings who first came into their lives as foster children.

Boys Town tells Foster Parent candidates that they can “be the one.” The one who makes a lonely, lost child feel accepted. Or, the one who can let go after helping to reunite a child with his or her family.

Sometimes it only takes that one person to make all the difference in the world in a child’s life. The Browns and their fellow Boys Town Foster Parents prove it every day.
