Jeanne Morrell, a Sister of St. Joseph and former school teacher, started foster care about 30 years ago. "There was a Mercy sister who was doing foster care and I would visit her now and again, and it was just enticing to me.", she says. Since then, she has fostered almost 80 children at her home in Pittsford, NY. She is currently the foster mother for two children, Z. (10) and K. (7), half sisters who were born with a genetic disorder, and the legal guardian of Keyajsha Singletary (7), who was born prematurely and suffers from cerebral palsy, seizure disorders and blindness. When Sister Jeanne began her foster home, Morning Star, she took in any child, but now cares almost exclusively for children with severe physical or developmental disabilities. "There aren't a lot of homes that take the real medically fragile... these children would be hard to place...There aren't a lot of homes that would want nurses in and out all the time. This just works for me, for us."
