BALTIMORE - It doesn't take a rocket scientists to help our kids out. Maybe it just takes the science of Laws, as in Al Laws, who is "2 Good 2 Be True."
Al Laws landing place is on Northern Parkway, directly across from Pimlico Racetrack. His odds of landing here went to the moon and back, after all he was on track to be an astronaut. One late night trip down Biddle Street changed his universe.
"Somebody has to do something about this," Al knew seeing young kids on the street at 2 a.m. was not right.
A man who that night felt stronger than the pillar of this white house knew it was up to him.
"I heard what are you going to do about it." Al gave up his promising career for a better one starting WIN Family Services. WIN stands for "What I Need." Al works his magic to get young men and women out of harms way and into arms of loving foster families.
Those caught up in the "Family Business" of selling drugs, who run guns and dodge daily when they hear shots need a place like WIN.
Al is a match-maker. Matching up children with foster family and fostering a tomorrow, most never thought possible, but now it is.
We believe in Al, who once gazed at the stars in his backyard of his Cedonia-Gardenville home, and now gazes from a front porch. He heard the call, not only answered it, but followed it and for that Al Laws is "2 Good 2 Be True"
Al has adoptable twins, Trinity and Divinity and now he wants you to hear his call. If you'd like to become a foster parent with WIN call 410-578-8003 or visit http://winfamilyservices.org .
