Foster Care Fortnight begins today and Cumbria County Council is backing the campaign.
They're asking everyone in the county to consider whether they have what it takes to become foster parents.
More than 600 children in Cumbria are currently in need of foster care but, there are only 200 fostering households.
The council hope they will be able to spend the next two weeks dispelling any myths about fostering.
