THERESA

My husband and I became Ramsey County foster parents when our bio kids were 7, 6, 5, and 2 months- that was in 2012.  Since then, we have fostered eight kids and adopted four!  We started out just hoping to adopt, but God opened our eyes to see beyond welcoming kids into our home to reaching out to build relationships with their birth families.  Our passion is to support birth families as they navigate the system both during and post placement by providing practical, emotional, and spiritual helps.  Ultimately, we want to see churches and the community actively engage in the lives of foster kids and their parents in a radical way!
