Room And Board

December 5, 1991
Vista Del Mar Child & Family Service is seeking foster homes for teen-agers. The agency will pay for the youngsters' room and board and take care of clothing, medical and dental needs. "These teen-agers need a caring home to provide structure in their lives," said Joan Apt, foster home recruiter for the agency. "They feel very alone, isolated and abandoned." Homes are needed for both boys and girls, and single people will be considered as foster parents, Apt said.

Two questions in the interview consume me. Although being a reporter gives one license to ask just about anything, these two questions knock around my head, unable to escape my mouth. The first feels superficial, but I have to know: How does this woman achieve such perfect fingernails? They are natural, unadorned, tapered to exquisite ovals. The second question would make me appear uninformed. For some time now I have been talking to her, to others about her, and observing her at work.
