DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

The number of foster children in South Georgia is sky high, but the number of foster parents is not.

The Lutheran Services of Georgia are helping foster parents get started. 

The group is running orientations for people interested. 

They are inviting those who have been on the fence about it to ask all their questions. 

Current foster parents said it has been a rewarding experience for them. 

"I learned so much from the kids that have been in my home that have been through trauma. It has made me a better person and a better mom," said Lauren Welch, a foster care recruiter. 

A final orientation is set for Tuesday at 5:30 at the Greenbrier Church in Sylvester.
