MILWAUKEE (WISN) – A Green Bay Packers wide receiver and his mom are working together to show the benefits of foster parenting through a new effort.
Ty Montgomery and his mother, Lisa Montgomery, have joined a foster parent recruitment campaign with the theme, “Without foster parents, futures get stuck.”
Lisa Montgomery fostered 17 children. Ty Montgomery, her only biological son, was keen on the idea.
“I wanted a bigger family,” he said. “I wanted some brothers in my life.”
His first foster brother was a boy named Lee.
