Meet Rocco and Melissa Lavaglio: Foster Parents with Hearts Bigger than Their Family

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Lavaglio family moved to Florida with the idea of taking it easy as their kids grow through high school. But after 4Kids of South Florida came to their church explaining the need for foster parents, Rocco and Melissa Lavaglio found themselves opening their doors to foster children.

“So, we started by opening our home to one child, soon found out she had siblings. We took one, then we took two, so we just kept going,” says Melissa.
