Chris Barnett takes a break at a McDonald's on his walk across Iowa and back again

There's a shortage of foster parents in Iowa, and Chris Barnett wants everyone to know about it.  To raise awareness of the need for new foster parents, Barnett is spending the month of May walking across the state of Iowa, twice.  He's reached the halfway point, and Host Charity Nebbe talks with him about his life and his mission.
