Alicia and Jim Bulger began fostering children in the 1980s, and now the Levittown couple is preparing to bring home their 100th foster child on Monday, March 20, 2017. The children stay with them for a few days to a few years. With four children of their own, the Bulgers have never been short of a busy household, but as Jim Bulger put it, fostering has been "kind of what we did." (Credit: Steve Pfost)
