When my husband and I first started learning about foster care and foster to adoption, there were so many 'unknowns' that it felt almost too scary to move forward.

I'm excited to see what the future holds and hope that we will be able to offer a temporary home on the path to reunification with a birth family or a permanent home through adoption for a child during their crisis/time of need.
