Marvin and I have been married for 21 years and have been foster parents for 18
of those years. We have fostered around 30+ children of all ages, races
and nationalities and abilities. Many of the children are now adults
and we continue to maintain relationships with them. In order to protect
the privacy of the children in our home, we are unable to show any of their
pictures on this website.
Marvin and I generally foster teenagers since they are the hardest to place.
Most people want young children but we find it very rewarding to work with the
teens. We got Matthew when he was 3 1/2 months old and although we said we
would never adopt, Matthew changed all that.
We do most everything together as a family. We enjoy camping, going
to movies, taking a drive in the country on nice days or just getting silly.
We love to play games and really enjoy board games. Me and my children love to
play scrabble and cards the most.
This picture shows Me, Marvin and 4 of our children along with my sister Elynn,
her husband Jerry and their 2 children, my sister Cheryl and my parents on a
recent family vacation to Tennessee. My older children were also with us
on vacation but chose to go a different direction on this particular day.
