For Leslie Wilson, it all started as a casual conversation with a close friend and desire to help kids. More than two years later, Leslie Wilson and her husband have opened their home to five foster children.

A letter from First Lady Linda Daugaard
All across South Dakota there are children in need of a loving and safe foster home.
Helping fill the need for foster families in South Dakota is something that both the Governor and I are very passionate about, and that’s why I’ve become involved with this initiative.
In June, I kicked off the FosterOne campaign.
South Dakota First Lady Linda Daugaard continues pushing her initiative FosterOne in an effort to recruit more foster families around the state. She brought that campaign to Rapid City, speaking to the Rushmore Rotary Club Tuesday morning.
There are 82 licensed foster care families in the Rapid City area.
