"My husband and I decided to become foster to adopt parents as our way to build the family we always wanted. Over the last few years the positive effect our love, compassion and time has helped our foster children grow, develop and make gains that will be with them as they continue on in their lives, even when they return to their biological family. We know we have chosen the right path whether we gain the family we always wanted or just continue to be there for these children when they come to us. We have also discovered there is always room for one more.
