From USA Today —
The Sesame Workshop is actively committing to supporting children in foster care – and delivered on its promise by introducing Karli, a Muppet who lives with her “for-now” parents, Dalia and Clem.
In a video titled “You Belong,” Karli attends a pizza party with Elmo in her new foster home and worries she doesn’t have a “place at the table” where she belongs.
“Sometimes, even mommies and daddies need some help taking care of their children,” Dalia says, explaining the role of foster parents to Elmo. “Karli’s mommy has been having a hard time, so we are her foster parents or her for-now-parents.
We will keep her safe until her mommy can take care of her again.”
