A foster parent's 15-year journey
By Dhany Osman In 2003, 53-year-old homemaker Norlia Ali Marican chanced upon an article about a foster parent who had stepped in to care for a child whose biological mother went missing, and was moved by the story. She and her husband went on to become foster parents in the same year and have fostered six children since. Two boys - 11-year-old Hyrul (not his real name) and the seven-year-old special needs boy - remain under her care. Full story here.
