BY: M. of A. Wright
 
        MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
        May  2019,  as Foster Care Month in the State of New
        York
 
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that the  children
of today are the citizens and leaders of tomorrow; and
 
  WHEREAS,  It  is the further sense of this Legislative Body that the
children of the State of New York are its  most  precious  resource  and
that,  as  such, they merit the support, encouragement and protection of
this State and Nation; and
 
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and  in  full  accord  with  its
long-standing  traditions,  it is the intent of this Legislative Body to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim  May  2019,  as  Foster
Care  Month in the State of New York, in conjunction with the observance
of National Foster Care Month; and
 
  WHEREAS, The designation of the month of May as Foster Care Month is
illustrative of this  Legislative  Body's  commitment  to  acknowledging
foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, policymakers, child
welfare  professionals,  and  other  members  of  the community who help
children and youth in foster care find permanent homes and  connections;
and
 
  WHEREAS,  The  proclamation  of May as Foster Care Month also renews
the commitment to ensuring a bright future for  the  more  than  400,000
children and youth in foster care; and
 
  WHEREAS, Foster Care Month is set aside to promote opportunities and
contribute  to  lifting  the  quality of life of the youth of this noble
Empire State, while advancing that spirit of united purpose  and  shared
concern   which   is  the  unalterable  manifestation  of  our  American
experience; now, therefore, be it
 
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its  deliberations  to
memorialize  Governor  Andrew  M.  Cuomo to proclaim May 2019, as Foster
Care Month in New York State, recognizing the significance of  the  role
the  children  of  New York State will play in shaping the future of our
State, our society, and our government; and be it further
 
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this  Resolution,  suitably  engrossed,  be
transmitted  to  The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of
New York.
