Lawyer Who Fostered 29 Kids Has Helped Hundreds More Into Permanent Homes

Fostering 29 children is no simple feat, but for a lawyer in Kansas, providing a home for more than two dozen kids over the years was the relatively easy part. According to NBC News, Kansas City attorney Gene Balloun has also helped more than 1,000 kids find permanent homes by using his legal knowledge to help foster parents adopt — for free. Gene has already represented foster parents in 1,035 adoption cases. His next goal, at the age of 86, is to reach 2,000 families helped.
