Dan Bracken is teaching his children a lesson on history and the solar system.

“For our children they’ve seen a world they don’t necessarily get to see every day,” Bracken said.

His children are home-schooled and he’s a foster parent. “We have four children that are ours- and we’re fostering a 5th right now,” he said.

It’s a calling that has also turned him into an advocate. Right now, state laws won’t allow him to go on vacation with his foster child without a long approval process.

“This past fall we wanted to go apple picking as a family- just across the state line – we couldn’t,” Bracken said.
