Fostering Change Podcast | How Single People Can Become Foster Parents and Make a Huge Difference in Children’s Lives with Kate Rapier

Today, we share the story of an amazing woman with the biggest heart—the epitome of what we love to call a “Good Human.”

We’ll learn how, in just three years, Kate Rapier quickly went from being single to becoming a foster mom, soon an adoptive parent of two, and then married to a man with three wonderful kids from a previous marriage!

Kate was single when she first began becoming a foster parent in 2020. And like many parents who take this journey, her life changed with a phone call that a child was coming into custody that day, and would she be able to take her? About 5 hours after stating an emphatic “YES”, a caseworker arrived with 1-week old “Gigi”.

After adopting Gigi in 2021, she was six weeks into dating her now husband when she received another life-changing phone call. This time about baby Ryland.

You’ll hear Kate share more about her life with Gigi, Ryland, her new family, and her amazing journey.

Kate is one of the loveliest people you’ll meet. We know you’ll agree and enjoy her story as much as we have.
