Sharon Beck received her award from Sandra Green President of the Frontenac Foster Parent Association
Ms. Sharon Beck of the Kingston-Frontenac FPA was recipient of the 2005 Foster Parent of the Year Award. Foster Parents at the FPSO Toronto conference in April learned of the remarkable life Sharon and her late husband Gary shared with many foster children who suffered from severe difficulties. One child in particular with severe Shaken Baby Syndrome was diagnosed never to function independently. After two years of determined effort by Sharon and Gary the child can now walk and talk and continues to develop.
Sharon has presented workshops on Shaken Baby Syndrome and is active in the Communicator program and is well respected by her peers at the Frontenac Children’s Aid Society.
