Dear Mr. Grey and Ms. Brown,

I am writing in regard to Linda Flynn's application as a certified foster parent in Eastern County. I have known Linda personally and socially for nine years. She is a kind, warm person, and one whom I have entrusted my own children to on many occasions.

Linda has always been a hard working, trustworthy individual. She has recently completed an intense program to earn her RN degree, meanwhile maintaining her close relationships and responsibilities as a single mother.

Over the years that I have known Linda, she has been through some challenges, including her divorce, and subsequently having to to find her own way financially and emotionally. She has done so without ever faltering in her judgement, and her ability to maintain a thriving home and environment for herself and her son.

Linda's home is a clean, happy, safe, nurturing place where children feel comfortable immediately. She keeps age appropriate games and toys available for all her young friends.

I believe that Linda would make a wonderful foster parent. She has always expressed an interest in sharing her life with many children, and her warmth and compassion would allow her to nurture any child during a difficult and transitory time.
